• ### A Novel Interferometric Sub-THz Doppler Radar With a Continuously Oscillating Reference Arm

Publication Year: 2014, Page(s):307 - 313
| | PDF (2337 KB) | HTML

In this paper, we have built and tested a mixerless sub-terahertz (sub-THz) Doppler radar consisting of just a continuous wave (CW) source and a Schottky diode intensity detector based on optical interferometry technique. The reference arm features an oscillating mirror to modulate the low-frequency-band (LFB) Doppler signature to the high-frequency-band (HFB) centered at the reference arm frequen...

• ### A Resonant Cold-Electron Bolometer With a Kinetic Inductance Nanofilter

Publication Year: 2014, Page(s):314 - 320
Cited by:  Papers (2)
| | PDF (1334 KB) | HTML

A novel type of resonant cold-electron bolometer (RCEB) is proposed. In this sensor, the internal resonance is organized by the kinetic inductance of an ultrasmall NbN superconducting nanostrip and the capacitance of the nanoscale superconductor-insulator-normal (SIN) tunnel junction. The size of kinetic inductance is about 300 times smaller than the size of geometrical inductance of the same valu... View full abstract»

• ### Coded-Aperture Imaging Using Photo-Induced Reconfigurable Aperture Arrays for Mapping Terahertz Beams

Publication Year: 2014, Page(s):321 - 327

| | PDF (1222 KB) | HTML

We report terahertz coded-aperture imaging using photo-induced reconfigurable aperture arrays on a silicon wafer. The coded aperture was implemented using programmable illumination from a commercially available digital light processing projector. At 590 GHz, each of the array element apertures can be optically turned on and off with a modulation depth of 20 dB and a modulation rate of ~ 1.3 kHz. P... View full abstract»

Free space communications with huge data capacity have become a key point for the development of mobile access, services, and network technologies convergence. Wireless links using emerging terahertz technologies, also referred to as T-ray communications, have become an intensive research field within last years since T-rays at the millimeter/submillimeter frontier remain more robust in terms of s...

• ### A Non-Contact Submillimeter-Wave $S$-Parameters Measurement Technique for Multiport Micromachined Devices

Publication Year: 2014, Page(s):338 - 346
Cited by:  Papers (3)
| | PDF (1874 KB) | HTML

This paper presents a novel non-contact broadband on-wafer S-parameter measurement technique for submillimeter-wave and terahertz applications. The proposed method enables S-parameters measurement of multi-port micromachined devices using a two-port measurement setup. In this method, a small fraction of the signal at each waveguide port is weakly coupled to free space using a small array of reflec... View full abstract»

• ### THz Measurements and Calibration Based on a Blackbody Source

Publication Year: 2014, Page(s):347 - 359
Cited by:  Papers (9)
| | PDF (3059 KB) | HTML

This paper presents a low-cost measurement setup for THz applications, based on a blackbody source, which is a commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) component. This measurement approach resembles the natural operating conditions of passive imaging systems and hence is more adequate in the characterization of the operation of THz sensors and filters for passive systems than narrowband THz sources. The ca... View full abstract»

• ### Electric Field Enhancement in 3-D Tapered Helix Antenna for Terahertz Applications

Publication Year: 2014, Page(s):360 - 367
Cited by:  Papers (6)
| | PDF (1721 KB) | HTML

A tapered helix monopole as a part of a rectenna for the detection of terahertz radiation is proposed. The antenna consists of a truncated conical helix extruded from a planar spiral and in a nanometric metallic whisker connected to one of its edges. The whisker faces a semiconductor substrate constituting the antenna ground plane. The structure is designed to be combined with a rectifying junctio... View full abstract»

• ### Theoretical and Empirical Evaluation of Surface Roughness Effects on Conductivity in the Terahertz Regime

Publication Year: 2014, Page(s):368 - 375
Cited by:  Papers (9)
| | PDF (1142 KB) | HTML

While models for conductivity in the terahertz regime are improving, there is limited data on the effects of submicrometer roughness features on conductivity. We present direct measurements of the effective conductivity of samples with periodic controlled roughness features using an open quasi-optical resonator at 400 and 650 GHz. The empirical results are compared with two closed-form models and ... View full abstract»

• ### High Fill-Factor Substrate-Based Wire-Grid Polarizers With High Extinction Ratios

Publication Year: 2014, Page(s):376 - 382
Cited by:  Papers (10)
| | PDF (1081 KB) | HTML

Low-cost, substrate-based, millimeter-wave-to-THz wire-grid polarizers have been fabricated on crystalline-quartz substrates using planar processing techniques. The polarizers achieve high extinction ratios (at least 60 dB) with a single layer, while maintaining low insertion loss (a few decibels) by taking advantage of previously under-utilized “spoof” surface-plasmon effects.

In this paper, we propose a circuit model for two-dimensional arrays of metallic square holes located on a homogeneous substrate, in order to propose a new scheme containing this type of metamaterials to obtain transparent electrodes with simultaneous terahertz transparency and low electrical resistance. The results of the introduced circuit model, which is a fully analytical model with explicit e... View full abstract»

This paper details the development of our millimeter- wave wideband power amplifier design. By treating the power combiner as an impedance transformer which allows different loading impedance to be taken into account, a compact wideband power-combining network can be constructed. With small transmission-line attenuation being sustained and maximum output power easily extracted from the transistors... View full abstract»
