    Abstract : Radio-frequency microelectromechanical systems (RF~MEMS) are highly miniaturized devices intended to switch, modulate, filter or tune electrical signals from DC to microwave frequencies. The micromachining techniques used to fabricate these components are based on the standard clean-room manufacturing processes for high-volume integrated semiconductor circuits. READ MORE

  2. 2. Waveguide-Integrated MEMS Concepts for Tunable Millimeter-Wave Systems

    Author : Zargham Baghchehsaraei; Joachim Oberhammer; Tauno Vähä-Heikkilä; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY;

    Abstract : This thesis presents two families of novel waveguide-integrated components based on millimeter-wave microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) for reconfigurable systems. The first group comprises V-band (50–75 GHz) and W-band (75–110 GHz) waveguide switches and switchable irises, and their application as switchable cavity resonators, and tunable bandpass filters implemented by integration of novel MEMS-reconfigurable surfaces into a rectangular waveguide.

  3. 3. Silicon micromachined waveguide components for terahertz systems

    Author : Bernhard Beuerle; Joachim Oberhammer; Umer Shah; Kamal Sarabandi; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; micromachining; waveguide; terahertz; deep reactive ion etching; silicon on insulator; on-wafer characterization; InP; SiGe; Electrical Engineering; Elektro- och systemteknik;

    Abstract : This thesis presents silicon micromachined waveguide components for sub-terahertz and terahertz (THz) systems fabricated by deep reactive ion etching (DRIE). Historically the main driving force for the development of THz systems has been space-based scientific instruments for astrophysics, planetary and Earth science missions. READ MORE

  4. 4. Exploiting the Terahertz Spectrum with Silicon Micromachining : Waveguide Components, Systems and Metrology

    Author : James Campion; Joachim Oberhammer; Umer Shah; Robert M. Weikle II; KTH; []
