Terahertz Sensors and Systems

The Terahertz Sensors and Systems Group (THZ) applies its telecom matured InP-technology for developing photomixers and photoconductive antennas which convert optical signals in the 1.5 µm wavelength range into THz radiation and vice versa.

Research Topics

Our research topics address different fields in the areas of:

  • CW THz emitters - based on ultrafast telekom photodiodes
  • Pulsed THz emitters - mesa-structured photoconductors
  • Photoconductive THz receivers - for serving both pulsed and cw systems
  • Assembly and test of complete fibre coupled THz systems
  • Application studies and consulting
