Abstract:

The purpose of this program is a study and invest igation of a photoconductive type of detector sensitive to radiation in the millimeter and sub millimeter wave regions of the electromagnetic spectrum. The detector utilizes a magnetically induced energy gap in indium antimonide and oper ates at temperatures of 4K, or below. Although the main emphasis of the work was directed toward the development of a practical operating device, some fundamental studies of the properties of indium antimonide at low temperatures and in a large magnetic field were also carried out.
