Abstract:

This final report summarizes research activities of AASERT-supported students during the period June 1, 1992 to June 30 1996 under contract F49620-92-J-0337. Key accomplishments included 1 generation of intense THz radiation by triggering vertical Gunn diodes with optical pulses 2 construction of a new tunable femtosecond regenerative amplifier system 3 generating tunable narrowband Thz radiation in free space from photoconducting antennas and 4 fabricating oxide superconducting electronic devices using ion implantation patterning.
