New frontiers in materials research
Our new THz technology system will provide a fully integrated solution for exploring electronic, magnetic, and chemical properties of materials for tomorrow’s technologies.
THz spectroscopy—intriguing possibilities
THz characterization is of particular interest because a number of important electronic and magnetic phenomena align with these frequencies. These include the energy levels of novel phenomena as well as matching the feature sizes of development-grade electronic materials. THz is also a contactless measurement.
Interesting physical phenomena occur on THz energy scales
- Carrier scattering time in semiconductors, important to development of high speed electronics
- Vibrational resonances in molecular solids, important to chemical identification and research in organic electronic and magnetic materials
- Antiferromagnetic resonances, important to spin-based computing
