Abstract:

In this project we are working to develop novel photonic crystal and planar integrated devices for THz frequencies. To achieve these goals we are developing custom high-resolution electron beam lithography EBL pattern generation processes and deep reactive etching techniques. To this end we have made progress in the areas of THz device design, fabrication, and characterization and have demonstrated the first THz photonic crystal slab single channel defect waveguide as well as a planar integrated ring cavity coupled waveguide. Details of these devices and the progress made to date in the overall effort are presented in this report.
