Abstract:

This report results from a contract tasking Ludwig-Maximilian University of Munich as follows The contractor will build an extremely all-solid-state spectrometer operating from the GHz up to the lower THz frequency regime with Hertz-level resolution. This method is sensitive up to 400 GHz and will be used to investigate electronic systems of reduced dimension. The contractor will compare the performance of the spectrometer with other microwave sources including gunn oscillators, FIR laser systems and common HP Network analyzers, as well as a high-frequency spectrometer. To accomplish this research plan will consists of 4 phases 1 Fabricate and assembler power combinerplanar antenna substrates 2 Perform photoconductive experiments using the terahertz generation system 3 Combine terahertz generation system with coupled semiconductor quantum dots 4 Perform photoconductive experiments on a grid of individually tunable coupled semiconductor quantum dots. Report is in electronic format on CD. Final report is in Adobe Postscript format, and interim report is in Microsoft Word format.
