Elena Mavrona Publishes Paper!

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

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

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 …

Paul and Duncan present THz research at Camogli, Italy

PhD students Paul Gow and Duncan McBryde presented their research at a Terahertz (THz) conference in Italy. Paul presented his work on multiplexing THz photo-Dember emitters by using a cylindrical lens array to a large audience. Duncan presented his poster on the characterising photo-Dember emitters on semi-insulting Gallium Arsenide (SI-GaAs) and low-temperature grown Gallium Arsenide …

The THz group present at IRMMW-THz 2013

Mark Barnes and Paul Gow toast a celebration to a highly successful poster session. During the first week of September we presented our latest research on Terahertz emitters at the largest Terahertz conference of 2013. Our group attracted a lot of attention with our investigation into the physical mechanism behind the lateral photo-Dember effect, including …
