300 femtoseconds switching time ~5,000 times faster
Recent News & Anouncements:
Researchers at the Technical University of Denmark (DTU) have shown that both the carrier mobility and the carrier density of graphene can be measured using terahertz (THz) radiation and doing away with the need to fabricate devices.
Systems based on terrahertz sources and detectors have become a candidate for industrial applications.
Q-Eye from UK’s Warwick University is sensitive to single photons; new spin-off targets applications in security.
