Spectroscopic Imaging Technology for THz Biosensor Integrated with a Lab-on-Chip Platform

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2007 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / CBD
Principal Investigator: Tatyana Khromova, president
Award Amount: $69,612.00
Abstract:
In this Phase I SBIR project we propose a new imaging mechanism for sub-wavelength THz spectroscopy based on a very strong enhancement of electromagnetic field of the THz radiation at the edges of periodic semiconductor structure. Our recent theoretical study showed THz radiation power enhancement… More
