Phase 1 STTR

Institution: University of Utah

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF05-T020
Budget: 08/11/05 - 05/11/06

The proposed work addresses an opportunity to develop a portable, tunable backward wave oscillator (BWO) for room temperature generation of terahertz radiation. The approach combines microfabricated photonic crystal waveguide circuits with state-of-the-art electron guns to achieve the efficiency needed for portability. The initial devices will t...

Phase 2 STTR

Institution: University of Iowa

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF00T017
Budget: 12/24/03 - 12/24/05

Compact, coherent terahertz-frequency radiation sources would open up an otherwise technologically dark part of the electromagnetic spectrum. The Phase II work objective is to develop solid state, semiconductor-based laser prototypes. The Phase I work demonstrated the feasibility of developing both optically and electrically pumped lasers based ...
