Key advances in Semiconductor Terahertz (THz) Technology now promises important new applications enabling scientists and engineers to overcome the challenges of accessing the soacalled terahertz gap . This pioneering reference explains the fundamental methods and surveys innovative techniques in the generation, detection and processing of THz waves with solidastate devices, as well as illustrating their potential applications in security and telecommunications, among other fields. With contributions from leading experts, Semiconductor Terahertz Technology: Devices and Systems at Room Temperature Operation comprehensively and systematically covers semiconductorabased room temperature operating sources such as photomixers, THz antennas, radiation concepts and THz propagation as well as roomatemperature operating THz detectors. The second part of the book focuses on applications such as the latest photonic and electronic THz systems as well as emerging THz technologies including: whispering gallery resonators, liquid crystals, metamaterials and grapheneabased devices. This book will provide support for practicing researchers and professionals and will be an indispensable reference to graduate students in the field of THz technology. Key features: Includes crucial theoretical background sections to photomixers, photoconductive switches and electronic THz generation a detection. Provides an extensive overview of semiconductorabased THz sources and applications. Discusses vital technologies for affordable THz applications. Supports teaching and studying increasingly popular courses on semiconductor THz technology. Ashcroft, N.W. and Mermin, N.D.
