Key advances in Semiconductor Terahertz (THz) Technology now promises important new applications enabling scientists and engineers to overcome the challenges of accessing the soa€“called terahertz gap . This pioneering reference explains the fundamental methods and surveys innovative techniques in the generation, detection and processing of THz waves with solida€“state 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 semiconductora€“based room temperature operating sources such as photomixers, THz antennas, radiation concepts and THz propagation as well as rooma€“temperature 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 graphenea€“based 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 semiconductora€“based THz sources and applications. Discusses vital technologies for affordable THz applications. Supports teaching and studying increasingly popular courses on semiconductor THz technology.[15] Ashcroft, N.W. and Mermin, N.D.
