– Thesis title. Simulation, optimization and characterization of terahertz components

– Thesis topic. The development of terahertz wide-band and powerful sources is the keystone for terahertz spectroscopy and wide band free-space communications. Photo-mixing is one of the solutions. In my PhD, I investigate the association between a Uni-Traveling Carrier Photo-Diode (UTC-PD) and a wide band antenna through simulations and characterizations. In order to characterize properly both components of the system, I am also developping a new S-parameters measurement and calibration setup.
