Elena Mavrona Publishes Paper!

By Paul Gow |

Congratulations to Elena Mavrona, who has just published her first paper. Entitled Refractive indices and birefringence of hybrid liquid crystal – nanoparticles composite materials in the terahertz region it was published today in AIP Advances. The paper looks at introducing BaTiO3 nanoparticles to a liquid-crystal (LC) solution to create a hybrid LC-ferroelectric nanoparticle suspension. The […]

Algorithm and Forum launched

By Paul Gow |

Two new pages have been added to the website. The first page links to a parameter extraction algorithm written by the group, designed to output the complex refractive index of a material. The algorithm is free to use and requires a THz time-domain reference scan, a THz time-domain scan of the sample and the sample […]

Paul publishes new paper in Electronics Letters

By Paul Gow |

Paul Gow has published his second paper as lead author. The paper entitled “Characterisation of THz emission from double-metal-patterned gallium–arsenide multiple emitters” was published in Electronics Letters in mid-December, 2014.  The paper describes the effect on the emitted THz when using different metals for fabricating the double-metal emitters previously mentioned in Duncan’s paper.  It also describes the […]

Lewis Maple publishes first paper

By Paul Gow |

Lewis Maple has published hi first paper as lead author. The paper entitled “A metamolecule antenna for coplanar waveguides” was published in the journal Optics Express in December, 2014. The paper reports on a metamolecule antenna, based on a fish-scale design, that is augmented with two split-ring resonators (SRRs) placed within the fish-scale loops. The […]

Duncan McBryde publishes his first paper in Optics Express

By Paul Gow |

Duncan McBryde, second year PhD student in the THz group, has published his paper entitled “Fluence and polarisation dependence of GaAs based lateral photo-Dember terahertz emitters” in the journal Optics Express. This paper presents the characterisation of THz output for photo-Dember emitters fabricated on different GaAs substrates. This paper can be found at: http://www.opticsinfobase.org/oe/abstract.cfm?uri=oe-22-3-3234.
