Terahertz photoconductive switch
G12864 series
■Applications
●Far-infrared spectroscopy
●Material analysis
●Nondestructive and non-contact inspection
●Structure inspection
●Security, etc.
■Outlines
The spectral region between light and electrical waves is known as terahertz(THz) region from the viewpoint of its
frequency. This far-infrared spectral region has recentry attracted considerable attention for its potential applications in spectrscopy, imaging, telecommunications, medical analysis, and so on. THz photoconductive switch
(sometimes called as photoconductive antenna) G12864 series is able to emit and/or detect THz wave by illuminating an ultrafast pulse laser. Small element size(6 mm x 10 mm) helps easy installation in a system.
■Absolute maximum ratings
Limiting values that must not be exceeded even momentarily, and even any one of the ratings must not be exceeded.
