In the circuit theory, the Norton and Thevenin equivalent generators are tools that simplify the solutions of networks involving passive or active components. They have been extensively used in the frequency domain to describe time-harmonic sources. A time-stepped evolution is instead typically used to include transient sources. As a...

Drude's description of the response of low-temperature gallium arsenide to optical pulse excitation is used to evaluate the components of a time-domain Norton equivalent circuit of a photoconductive antenna (PCA) source. The saturation of the terahertz (THz) radiated power occurring at large optical excitation levels was previously associated...

Large format focal plane arrays (FPAs) of dielectric lenses are promising candidates for wide field-of-view submillimeter imagers. In this work, we optimize the scanning gain of such imagers via shaping lens surfaces. We develop an optimization procedure using a field correlation technique between the fields generated by a reflector on the...

Photoconductive antennas (PCAs) are promising candidates for sensing and imaging systems. We have investigated their properties under pulsed laser illumination both in transmission and reception. First, a transmitting PCA has been characterized including a power measurement. Then, a Quasi-Optical (QO) link between a transmitter and a receiver...

Photoconductive antennas (PCAs) are used for imaging and sensing applications because of their ability to radiate short pulses with large bandwidths in the THz regime. The characterization of PCAs has previously been done using a time-domain Norton equivalent circuit. Thanks to a recent contribution, the size of the excited photoconductive area...

Lens based focal plane arrays (FPAs) with thousand elements are promising candidates for wide scanning sub-millimeter security imaging systems. To analyze such arrays, a field correlation approach is employed to design an FPA of quartz lenses coupled to a reflector. We consider quartz as the lens material due to its lower cost compared to...

State-of-the-art THz pulsed commercial systems operating over large bandwidth suffer from high dispersion or low radiation efficiency due to the poor coupling between the transmitter and receiver photoconductive antennas (PCAs). In this work, we present the fabrication and characterization of a leaky-lens PCA that has the potential to solve...

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...

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...

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...

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....

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 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...

This communication proposes a broadband and efficient integrated focal plane array solution based on a near-field focused connected array of slots. The focused aperture provides: 1) broadband and highly efficient illumination of the quasi-optical system and 2) scanning capabilities within a focusing system. The connected array antenna in turn...

A system concept for online alignment verification of millimeter-wave, corneal reflectometry is presented. The system utilizes beam scanning to generate magnitude-only reflectivity maps of the cornea at 650 GHz and compares these images to a precomputed/measured template map to confirm/reject sufficient alignment. A system utilizing five off...

Aims. Future actively cooled space-borne observatories for the far-infrared, loosely defined as a 1-10 THz band, can potentially reach a sensitivity limited only by background radiation from the Universe. This will result in an increase in observing speed of many orders of magnitude. A spectroscopic instrument on such an observatory requires...
