We are pleased to invite you to the Skoltech Colloquium. Our guest lecturer, Dr. Dmitri V. Lioubtchenko, will present a talk titled “Future THz Technology”.
What: Future THz technology
When: April 30, 4 pm
Where: Moscow School of Management, Beijing-2 Auditorium – China cluster
Guest speaker: Dr. Dmitri V. Lioubtchenko, Department of Radio Science and Engineering, Aalto University School of Science and Technology, Finland
So called “THz gap” frequency range of 0.1-1.0 THz frequency region is extremely significant for wide range of applications, for instance, for wide band telecommunication and imaging systems, material spectroscopy, and medical imaging and treatments. In spite of the problems in technology and high prices for basic components (phase shifters, directional couplers, etc.), the THz systems meet expanding interest of consumers. For instance, THz applications in communications come from the great interest to the ultra-fast wireless communication links for future wireless systems, providing data rates of more than 10 Gbit/s.
One of a radically new line of technology can be establishing dielectric rod waveguide as a novel platform for future THz electronics, new technological principles and concepts in design and manufacturing of the components. The dielectric rod waveguide approach overcomes current technological limits set by conductivity losses of metallic waveguides and is more compact by orders of magnitude than quasi-optical waveguides. The compactness of the dielectric rod waveguide, simple manufacturing, and possibility to integrate of active and passive components, have high-potential to research and innovation of novel THz concepts and THz applications.
