Generation and Detection of Terahertz Waves using Optoelectronic Techniques: Towards Terahertz Photonics
D Saeedkia ,
Abstract Optoelectronic techniques for generation and detection of terahertz (THz) signals
have been reviewed. The operation principles of THz photomixer sources have been
studied and recent developments in these area have been presented. The performances 

Proceedings of the First International Workshop on FIB for Photonics: Eindhoven, the Netherlands, 13-14 June 2008: collocated with the 14th European
F Ay, LJ Kauppinen ,2008 ,
Although FIB for applications in optics has recently become a hot topic, it has received little
special attention in conference meetings. FIB has attracted interest from several research
groups because of its potential for rapid prototyping of nanostructured devices, post- 

Angular-Resolved Optical Characteristics and Threshold Gain Analysis of GaN-Based 2-DPhotonics Crystal Surface Emitting Lasers
SW Chen, TC Lu, TC Liu, PH Weng, HC Kuo ,
Photonic crystal (PhC) surface emitting lasers (PCSELs) utilizing Bragg diffraction

Improving resonant photonics devices with sol-gel coatings
Y Jestin, AB Matsko, AA Savchenkov ,Proceedings of , 2009 ,
ABSTRACT We show that the stimulated Raman process impairs multiple applications of
ultra high Q whispering gallery mode resonators and discuss possible ways of its
suppression. One of the most promising ways is the coating of the resonators with films 

CAD-Supported University Course on Photonics and Fiber-Optic Communications
DKC Chan ,Proc. SPIE, 2002 ,
ABSTRACT The highly competitive global photonics industry has created a significant
