Title: Millimetre-wave and Terahertz Electronics

Item Type: Thesis or dissertation
Abstract: Overview: The basic thesis for the advancement of millimetre-wave and terahertz electronics is represented in four sections: Signal Processing, Component Design and Realization, Modelling and Materials, and Paradigm Shift. The first section is at system and circuit levels and reports on complex signal process functions that have been performed directly on the millimetre-wave carrier signal, intended for realizing low-cost and adaptive communications and radar systems architectures. The second section is at circuit and component levels and reports on techniques for the design and realization of low-loss passives for use at millimetrewave frequencies. The third section is at component and material levels and reports on modelling techniques for passives for use at both millimetre-wave and terahertz frequencies. Finally, the fourth section introduces a revolutionary new technology that represents a paradigm shift in the way millimetre-wave and terahertz electronics (i.e. components, circuits and systems) can be implemented. As found with the new generation of mobile phone handsets, a fusion of two extreme technologies can take place; here, complex signal processing operations could be performed both directly on the carrier signal and with the use of a spatial light modulator. Based on a selection of 20 papers (co-)authored by the candidate †b, and published over a period of 15 years, it will be seen that a coherent theme runs throughout this body of work, for the advancement of knowledge in millimetre-wave and terahertz electronics.
