Introducing tunability to Terasense IMPATT based THz generators
As a customer-centric provider, TERASENSE continuously takes efforts to develop and improve its products to meet the growing expectations of the customers. It’s time to tell you about another round of upgrades, which we experience now and which touched on our THz generators this time.
We know how many customers are looking for tunable THz sources. As our first step forward to help meet their needs we are ready to offer our first two tunable models of sub-THz sources (IMPATT based generators) as outlined below:
|100 GHz (>80 mW) wave source||140 GHz (>30 mW) wave source|
|Frequency: ~100 GHz||Frequency: ~140 GHz|
|Output power:>80 mW output rfpower)||Output power:>30 mW output rfpower)|
Technology is based on paired master and IMPATT generators, where it is a tunable master generator with amplifier sets the frequency of the whole source. Frequency tunability bandwidth is just about +/- 0.25 GHz, which means that the total tunable range covers 0.5 GHz. However, it's just the first step, which is always troublesome and hard. We all know that practice makes perfect, and there are no doubts that the future models will have broader tunablity range and better set of characteristics.
One can rest assured that there will be some other tunable sources that coming in the wake of these first two . In particular, one tunable terahertz source with much wider tubability span of 71 - 77 GHz (output power 300 mW) is currently in the pipeline. The exact time of its release is not clear yet, but we already know that it is expected to include base unit 142 - 154 GHz; or 284 - 308 GHz. The output power at 150 GHz is anticipated at the level of 100 mW, while 300 GHz it will hardly exceed 25 mW.
Feel free to check with us and we will be happy to keep you updated on our progress.
