Millimeter-wave and terahertz signal generation and detection in silicon
MetadataShow full item record
Millimeter-wave (mm-wave) and Terahertz (THz) frequency range is generally defined as frequencies between 30GHz to 3THz. With the recent advancement in mm-wave/THz technologies, it has shown great promise in a wide range of emerging applications, such as high-speed wireless communication, non-invasive imaging, biomedical sensing, non-destructive quality control, and spectroscopy. Until recently, mm-wave/THz systems have been mostly dominated by compound III-V processes and quasi-optical approaches. In this dissertation, we will present our design philosophies and approaches towards the development of fully integrated signal generation and detection systems for various emerging applications at mm-wave and THz using advanced silicon technologies.
