Hamamatsu Photonics Produce Terahertz Waves At A Wavelength Of 450 μm

News

Hamamatsu Photonics has succeeded in producing terahertz waves at a wavelength of 450 μm in the terahertz range which is the world's longest wavelength available from a single semiconductor laser operating at room temperature. To achieve this breakthrough, we have developed long-wavelength mid-infrared quantum cascade laser, in which we designed the laser structure based on research and analysis results of the terahertz wave generation principle. Results from this research will be useful in applications such as quality testing and non-destructive inspection of drugs and foods containing components that absorb electromagnetic waves in the sub-terahertz range as well as submillimetre astronomy and high-speed and high-capacity communication over short distances.

Results of this research were published on November 2 (Thu) in the electronic version of the European Scientific Journal “Nanophotonics.” This research and development work supported by the MIC/SCOPE #195006001.

AngelTech Online Summit is now available to watch ON-DEMAND!

AngelTech Online Summit witnessed over 900 registrants for the digital event, which took place virtually on Tuesday 19th May.

The Summit was designed to ensure the global compound semiconductor, integrated photonics, sensors and PIC pilot lines communities could stay connected and would serve as a significant supplement to the annual Brussels face-to-face conference, rescheduled for 17th and 18th November, 2020.

The event included 4 breakout sessions for CS International, PIC International, Sensors International and PIC Pilot Lines respectively.
