Using an imaging process they call laser-terahertz emission microscopy (LTEM), researchers at Okayama University (Okayama, Japan) have developed a terahertz chemical microscope (TCM) that images chemical reactions with higher spatial resolution than conventional terahertz imaging methods.
Recent News & Anouncements:
A silicon-germanium (SiGe) transistor operates at 798 gigahertz (GHz) fMAX, exceeding the previous speed record for silicon-germanium chips by about 200 GHz.
A 3.4-THz-emitting quantum-cascade laser (QCL) created by a group at the School of Electronic and Electrical Engineering, University of Leeds, reaches a pulsed peak power of up to 1.01 W from a single facet when cooled to 10 K.
This grant will aid Lake Shore as it continues to develop its 8500 Series THz system for material characterization.
