Abstract
ABSTRACT: The successful culmination of this work will result in development of a highly directional integrated, photoconductive switch and source-antenna system that will generate high power THz radiation for a myriad of defense, homeland security, and civilian applications: including the ability to image objects at relatively far distances with high resolution and to establish undetectable communication links in military field operations. BENEFIT: The benefits of a high power directional THz System are substantial for the military, other government agencies, and commercial sectors. The Military needs to image objects at relatively far distances with high resolution and to establish undetectable communication links in field operations; the Homeland Security Agency could deploy THz for inspection purposes.
