  1. 1. Study of MgB2 and YBa2Cu3O7-x Microbolometers for THz Sensing Applications

    Author : Stella Bevilacqua; [2014]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; MgB2< sub>; bolometers; Terahertz frequency; IF bandwidth; noise; HEB; THz Detectors; superconductors; YBa2< sub>Cu3< sub>O7-x< sub>;

    Abstract : In this thesis, two novel THz detectors based on magnesium diboride (MgB2)and yttrium barium copper oxide (YBa2Cu3O7-x) are presented. In particular,MgB2 superconductor is used for the investigation of hot-electron bolometer(HEB) mixers, while YBa2Cu3O7-x is explored in microbolometers for room-temperaturecoherent and incoherent detection.
