Silicon-based terahertz waveguides
In recent years, there has been significant interest in developing guided wave components operating in the terahertz regime for applications that include bio-sensing, imaging, slow light devices, modulators and lasers. In this talk, I will introduce two types of silicon-based terahertz waveguides and their applications. One is anisotropically etched highly doped silicon surface for supporting THz plasmonic guided wave. The other is intrinsic silicon ridge waveguide used to study silicon’s terahertz intensity dependent absorption.
Shanshan Li received B. Eng. degree in electrical and electronic engineering from University of Science and Technology of China in 2010. She is currently pursuing a Ph.D. degree in electrical and computer engineering at University of Maryland, College Park. Her research interests include terahertz nonlinear optics and terahertz devices.
