IET Colloquium on Millimetre-wave and Terahertz Engineering & Technology

This Call for Contributions event provides the opportunity for networking with key people in the area with the presence of industrial leaders

The millimetre-wave and terahertz regions of the electromagnetic spectrum have recently attracted new interest with new applications beginning to appear such as communications, non-destructive testing and medical imaging.

The availability of higher power solid state sources, more efficient multipliers and room temperature detectors is pushing the boundary of solid state systems to 1 THz, opening up a raft of commercially driven industrial applications. The emergence of 5G communications and E-band radios is providing a cost-effective entry into the lower millimetre wave part of the spectrum.

Quantum Cascade Lasers (QCLs) operating at ever higher temperatures are becoming a practical alternative to gas lasers for the multi-terahertz region.

New machining and fabrication techniques such as 3D printing coupled with powerful finite element analysis and testing capability offers further reductions in cost and more complicated system architectures.

This colloquium will provide the latest insight from leaders in their fields as to the direction the technology and commercial outlook is likely to take.
