Introduction

Abstract

The primary purpose of this text is to provide analytic and experimental methods to design planar metamaterial based wave modulators for terahertz frequencies, especially for communication and imaging applications. This chapter provides the motivation for the reader by answering two basic questions: why terahertz frequencies and why design metamaterials for that frequency regime.

Keywords

  • High Electron Mobility Transistor
  • Terahertz Wave
  • Terahertz Frequency
  • Terahertz Imaging
  • Terahertz Device

These keywords were added by machine and not by the authors. This process is experimental and the keywords may be updated as the learning algorithm improves.

Notes

  1. 1.

    Some define THz to be the submillimeter-wave energy that fills the wavelength range between 1 and 0.1 mm (300 GHz–3 THz) [1].

  2. 2.

    Original Russian version was published in 1967.
