Most methods of imaging in the terahertz (THz) spectral region utilize either pulsed-laser sources or require the THz generation and detection sources to be phase coherent. The application of interferometric imaging to the THz range is described. Interferometric imaging offers considerable advantages in this regard due to its ability to image with only a handful of detector elements, image many sources of THz radiation at once, image incoherent as well as coherent sources, and provide spectral information as well as spatial imaging information. The THz interferometric imaging method is potentially useful for remote detection of explosives. (C) 2003 American Institute of Physics.


Thin-film transistors based on poly, (3,3 '''-dialkyl-quarterthiophene) and zinc oxide nanowires with improved ambient stability
Vieira, Sara M. C.; Hsieh, Gen-Wen; Ünalan, Hüsnü Emrah; Dag, Sefa; Amaratunga, Gehan A. J.; Milne, William I. (AIP Publishing, 2011-03-07)
The ambient stability of thin-film transistors (TFTs) based on zinc oxide (ZnO) nanowires embedded in poly (3,3'''-dialkyl-quarterthiophene) was monitored through time dependence of electrical characteristics over a period of 16 months. The hybrid-based TFT showed an initial hole mobility in the linear regime of 4.2 x 10(-4) cm(2)/V s. After 16 months storage in ambient conditions (exposed to air, moisture, and light) the mobility decreased to 2.3 x 10(-5) cm(2)/V s. Comparatively the organic-based TFT lost...
Nanoscale charging hysteresis measurement by multifrequency electrostatic force spectroscopy
Bostanci, Umut; Abak, M. Kurtulus; AKTAŞ, Özgür; DANA, Aykutlu (AIP Publishing, 2008-03-03)
We report a scanning probe technique that can be used to measure charging of localized states on conducting or partially insulating substrates at room temperature under ambient conditions. Electrostatic interactions in the presence of a charged particle between the tip and the sample is monitored by the second order flexural mode, while the fundamental mode is used for stabilizing the tip-sample separation. Cycling the bias voltage between two limits, it is possible to observe hysteresis of the second order...
Measurement of differential top-quark-pair production cross sections in pp collisions at root s=7 TeV
Chatrchyan, S.; et. al. (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2013-03-01)
Normalised differential top-quark-pair production cross sections are measured in pp collisions at a centre-of-mass energy of 7 TeV at the LHC with the CMS detector using data recorded in 2011 corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 5.0 fb(-1). The measurements are performed in the lepton + jets decay channels (e + jets and mu + jets) and the dilepton decay channels (e(+)e(-), mu(+)mu(-), and mu(+/-)e(-/+)). The t (t) over bar differential cross section is measured as a function of kinematic properties ...
Multidimensional quantum tunneling in the Schwinger effect
Dumlu, Cesim K. (American Physical Society (APS), 2016-03-22)
We study the Schwinger effect, in which the external field having a spatiotemporal profile creates electron-positron pairs via multidimensional quantum tunneling. Our treatment is based on the trace formula for the QED effective action, whose imaginary part is represented by a sum over complex worldline solutions. The worldlines are multiperiodic, and the periods of motion collectively depend on the strength of spatial and temporal inhomogeneity. We argue that the classical action that leads to the correct ...
Ultimate fast optical switching of a planar microcavity in the telecom wavelength range
Ctistis, Georgios; Yüce, Emre; HARTSUİKER, Alex; Claudon, Julien; Bazin, Maela; Gerard, Jean-Michel; Vos, Willem L. (AIP Publishing, 2011-04-18)
We have studied a GaAs-AlAs planar microcavity with a resonance near 1300 nm in the telecom range by ultrafast pump-probe reflectivity. By the judicious choice of pump frequency, we observe an ultimate fast and reversible decrease in the resonance frequency by more than half a linewidth due to the instantaneous electronic Kerr effect. The switch-on and switch-off of the cavity is only limited by the cavity storage time of tau(cav)=0.3 ps and not by intrinsic material parameters. Our results pave the way to ...
