Abstract:

The ultimate goal of this research is to create a militarily viable terahertz technology suitable for use in portable spectrometers for point and stand-off detection of explosives and chemical and biological threat agents. To achieve this goal Virginia Diodes will develop a compact and reliable terahertz spectrometer based on a revolutionary new solid-state diode technology. This technology is based on highly integrated GaAs-on-dielectric circuits that are used to translate the functionality of lower frequency systems to the terahertz band.
