goals

The students are able to identify problems which can be solved with photonic THz systems. They can explain the setup of photonic THz systems and are able elaborate on advantages and disadvantages of a certain system in respect to an applicataion. Moreover they are able to explain and implement typical data analysis procedures.

content

The lecture deals with the basics and applications of photonic THz systems. Main focus is the frequency range from 100GHz up to 10THz for applications like thin film measurements, non destructive testing, and spectroscopy. Narrowband continuous wave systems as well as time domain spectroscopy systems based on ultrashort pulse lasers are presented. The exercises are based on the analysis of measurement data acquired by the presented systems.
