The exploration of icy body composition in the solar system has often involved spectroscopic measurements of volatiles detected with remote sensing, such measurements portray materials naturally expelled from the surface that enter the exosphere and potentially escape into space. Variations in the ratio of deuterium and hydrogen in these...

In this paper, we present a quasi-optical power distribution architecture based on the use of an integrated lens antenna that generates a uniform aperture field distribution. By using such distribution in combination with an integrated lens array, an efficient and scalable quasi-optical power distribution can be achieved at THz frequencies....

The development of a low focal number and low-mass lens antenna is presented that enables terahertz spectroscopy applications on ultracompact platforms. The antenna operates efficiently over a 20% fractional bandwidth, from 450 to 550 GHz, with a gain of 50 dBi at 500 GHz. The antenna consists of a hyperbolic silicon lens that is placed in a...

The continuous advancements in the coverage and sensitivity of terahertz direct-detector imagers places increasing constraints on the test benches needed for characterization. Already, relative differences on the order of a few decibels are observed between simulated and measured performance in the state-of-the-art literature. This...

Terahertz heterodyne spectrometer instruments have been traditionally limited to a single pixel or a handful of pixels due to integration and assembly constraints and a limited availability of local oscillator (LO) power. As a solution we propose a novel silicon-micromachined planar and modular packaging strategy, that will allow for a dense...

The design of a focal plane array (FPA) for imaging at sub-mm wavelengths generally is a trade-off between resolution and sensitivity. For maximum angular resolution, minimal spacing between FPA elements is desired, which leads to increased losses due to spillover and mutual coupling and therefore deteriorates the imaging sensitivity. This work...

This contribution presents the development of an electrically small lens antenna using an artificially loaded thermoplastic at 140-170GHz. We will present the on-going development of the Fly’s Eye front end antenna concept that was presented in [1]. The antenna is composed on a dual plastic lens, a core lens and a shell lens, fed by a double...

This article presents the development of a focal plane array (FPA) for terahertz imaging applications with a near diffraction-limited resolution achieved through a very tight sampling of the focal plane. The antenna array is integrated with direct detectors in a 22-nm CMOS technology and operates from 200 to 600 GHz. The tight sampling of the...

A novel transmit lens array is proposed to provide broadband quasi-optical power distribution and beam-steering capabilities for array architectures in future submillimeter-wave heterodyne instruments. The transmit array is composed of a double array layer of lens antenna elements with high aperture efficiency. To enable broadband and low loss...

We report the measured results of a sparse, 4x1 scanning lens phased array prototype at W-band that is capable of beam steering a directive (>30 dBi) beam towards ±20° with sidelobe levels around -10 dB. The array elements are high-aperture-efficiency resonant leaky-wave lens antennas with a feed that suppresses the spurious TM0 mode over a...

A small volume and low-mass THz spectroscopy instrument, integrated in a CubeSat platform, enables an accessible and low-cost pathway to earth science. Low-profile lens antennas emerge as a suitable candidate to realize a high gain, 50 dB, over a wide bandwidth, from 450 GHz to 550 GHz. To achieve a high aperture efficiency with a large...

We present a resonant leaky-wave lens antenna, fed by a circular waveguide with annular corrugations in the ground plane. The proposed leaky-wave feed reduces the impact of the spurious TM0 leaky-wave mode in all planes over a wide bandwidth while reducing assembly complexity compared to previous methods. The proposed leaky-wave antenna has...

This work presents a novel lens antenna architecture based on a core-shell lens design with a leaky-wave in-packaged antenna at 150GHz. An electrically small core lens made of dense dielectric material is used to enhance the radiation of the in-packaged antenna. A low-loss dielectric shell lens with electrically large dimensions is then added to...

We report on the first demonstration of dynamic beam steering using a scanning lens phased array. A scanning lens phased array relies on a combination of mechanical and electrical phase shifting to dynamically steer a high-gain beam beyond the grating-lobe free region using a sparse array. These two concepts have been demonstrated separately in...

We present the design, fabrication and characterization of a broadband lossless matching layer for shallow lens arrays. The matching layer we propose is based on silicon pyramids fabricated on top of the lens array by means of laser ablation. This matching layer has the advantage that it covers over an octave of bandwidth. We have compared the...

We present the design, fabrication and characterization of a broadband lossless matching layer for silicon lens arrays. The proposed matching layer is based on silicon frusta (truncated pyramids) on top of the lens array fabricated by means of laser ablation.
