Abstract
Through a US Army sponsored SBIR project we are developing terahertz components based on integrated GaAs Schottky diodes for the frequency range from 200 - 700 GHz. These new components are inherently broadband and therefore require no mechanical tuners. Rather, they can be electronically swept across significant frequency bands and are therefore useful for chemical and biological spectroscopy. This talk will focus on our demonstration of a terahertz frequency Transmit / Receive capability which may be of use for CB detection and secure communications.
