  1. Watt-level THz Solid-State RF Amplifiers Using All-Metal-Terminal Hot-Electron Transistors (AMTHETs)

    SBC: CARLEY TECHNOLOGIES, INC            Topic: SB162006

    The objective of the proposed project is to develop designs for manufacturable all-metal terminal hot-electron transistors (AMTHETs) that will enable 1W 10W THz RF amplifiers and oscillators. The proposed work will focus on quantum-mechanical modeling to characterize the performance of AMTHETs for amplification and oscillation at THz frequencies. In parallel with the modeling effort, likely manuf ...
