Award Amount: $120,000.00
 

Abstract:

The goal of this proposal is to develop frequency domain terahertz spectrometers for chemical and biological sensing based on compact and reliable all-solid-state components. VDI's novel integration technology allows full waveguide band performance without mechanical tuners as well as unprecedented source power and detector sensivity for room temperature operation. A prototype spectrometer will be developed and tested with precalibrated samples. The spectrometer technology will be shown to be highly compact and portable.
