  1. 1. On-chip terahertz characterisation of liquids

    Author : Juan Cabello Sánchez; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; NATURAL SCIENCES; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; dielectric permittivity; Through-Reflect-Line TRL calibration; vector network analyzers VNA ; terahertz spectroscopy; isopropyl alcohol IPA ; coplanar waveguides CPW ; water; on-wafer measurements; planar Goubau line; Chip; liquids; microfluidic channels; scattering parameters; material properties;

    Abstract : Spectroscopy at terahertz frequencies can be used in a wide range of applications including radio-astronomy, pharmaceutical manufacturing control, and the study of processes in molecular biology. Biomolecular samples should preferably be studied in their native environment, water, however, water poses extreme attenuation for THz-frequency waves, deteriorating or even impeding analysis using these waves.

  2. 2. Planar-Goubau-line components for terahertz applications

    Author : Juan Cabello Sánchez; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : on-wafer measurements; power divider; microfluidic channels; silicon membrane; Impedance-matched load; stopband filter; vector network analyzers VNA ; terahertz spectroscopy; planar Goubau line; Through-Reflect-Line TRL calibration;

    Abstract : Terahertz-wave technology has a broad range of applications, including radio astronomy, telecommunications, security, medical applications, pharmaceutical quality control, and biological sensing. However, the sources, detectors, and components are less efficient at this frequency band due to parasitic effects and increased total losses, which hinder the performance of terahertz systems.

  3. 3. Ultrafast spin dynamics at the nanoscale : using coherent X-ray and terahertz radiation

    Author : Nanna Zhou Hagström; Stefano Bonetti; Stefan Eisebitt; Ferran Macià Bros; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; XFEL; small-angle X-ray scattering; X-ray holography; ultrafast magnetism; symmetry-breaking; magnetic domains; terahertz; magnetic field enhancement; metamaterial; time-resolved magneto-optical microscope; Physics; fysik;

    Abstract : The field of ultrafast magnetism is driven by the growing need for faster and more efficient magnetic data storage, which comprises the vast majority of the digital information worldwide. However, after more than two decades of intense research, the understanding of the fundamental physical processes governing the transfer of angular momentum necessary for magnetic switching, is still lacking, partially hampered by the appropriate experimental tools.

  4. 4. Terahertz radiation as a pump and probe for studying low frequency vibrations in proteins

    Author : Ida Lundholm; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : Terahertz radiation; Protein dynamics;

    Abstract : Many functionally important structural changes in proteins proceed along the direction of their lowest frequency vibrations. These vibrations correspond to picosecond collective dynamics. Establishing the fundamental relationship between these vibrations and protein function remains a challenge within biophysics.

  5. 5. Graphene FET terahertz detectors on flexible substrates

    Author : Xinxin Yang; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : sensors; THz detectors; flexible electronics; 2D materials; Graphene; field-effect transistors; plastic substrates.;

    Abstract : Terahertz (THz) science and technology have developed rapidly over the past decades, extending the THz application areas from spectroscopy and earth and space sciences to communications, biomedicine and security sensing. Many of these emerging applications require shape-conforming, light-weight and low-cost detectors rather than existing solid-state detection technology. READ MORE
