Integrated Terahertz Sensors Using Silicon Nanowires

Already the material of choice for electronics for decades, silicon has now emerged as the premier material in photonics and terahertz, offering cost-effective solutions for several applications. In this project, we plan to address the specific problem that TeTechS Inc is facing at this stage of its product development project, which is developing a silicon-based CMOS compatible platform for THz generation and integrate it with a sensor for bio-sensing applications. This project combines nanofabrication, micro-fabrication and nano-photonic on a single chip and not only reduces the fabrication cost but also enables the platform to integrate with other silicon-based components to increase the range of the applications to imaging and short range communications.
