Overview:
Development work on very high frequency devices and metamaterials has been limited by the difficulty in making good tests. Developers and users of amplifiers, mixers, filters, detectors, receivers, radios and metamaterials at these frequencies need tools for making critical measurements at mmwave and higher frequencies. This webinar show how instruments you are familiar with including Vector Network Analyzers, Signal Analyzers and Sources can be extended in frequency to make a variety of precision measurements at Gigahertz to Terahertz frequencies.

What attendees will learn:

  • Key applications using mmwave to Terahertz frequencies
  • Challenges in making measurements at very high frequencies
  • Measurement capabilities available
  • Test setups for component and metamaterial measurements

A cool project would be to take one of Ti 249$ spectrum analysers and extend it up in frequency with these techniques. would be a very cool way for your typical grad student, cash strapped start up or late night tinkerer to have a cheap spectrum analyser on ones desktop.
