Photoconductive Switches

Compact modules for pulsed terahertz generation

    • Fiber-Coupled InGaAs Antennas
    • SM/PM fiber pigtail and Silicon lens included
    • High terahertz power: typ. > 30 µW
    • High bandwidth > 5 THz
    • Core components of TeraFlash platform

    Pulsed terahertz generation with leading-edge technology: InGaAs antennas provide about 30 µW power and a bandwidth of more than 5 THz. The emitter and detector modules, developed by Fraunhofer Heinrich-Hertz Institute (Berlin/Germany), feature a strip-line and a dipole antenna, respectively, and are packaged with a Silicon lens and SM/PM fiber. They make up the core component of TOPTICA’s TeraFlash, but are available as individual modules too.
