Hamamatsu Photonics Produce Terahertz Waves At A Wavelength Of 450 μm


Hamamatsu Photonics has succeeded in producing terahertz waves at a wavelength of 450 μm in the terahertz range which is the world's longest wavelength available from a single semiconductor laser operating at room temperature. To achieve this breakthrough, we have developed long-wavelength mid-infrared quantum cascade laser, in which we designed the laser structure based on research and analysis results of the terahertz wave generation principle. Results from this research will be useful in applications such as quality testing and non-destructive inspection of drugs and foods containing components that absorb electromagnetic waves in the sub-terahertz range as well as submillimetre astronomy and high-speed and high-capacity communication over short distances.

Results of this research were published on November 2 (Thu) in the electronic version of the European Scientific Journal “Nanophotonics.” This research and development work supported by the MIC/SCOPE #195006001.
