Measuring Very Low Power IR Lasers with the RM9 Radiometer System

There are two main technologies commonly used today for measuring laser beam powers: Photodiode-based sensors, used for measuring low powers (from pW up to several hundred mW, typically); these are limited to spectral regions from the UV to the near IR, depending on the specific semiconductor used, and Thermal sensors, used for measuring higher powers;…

Terahertz Technology- New Challenges, New Solutions

Terahertz (=THz) radiation is electromagnetic radiation located between the low-frequency far-infrared and the high-frequency microwave parts of the spectrum (from 0.3 to 3 x 1012 Hz, with a wavelength from 10 micrometers to 1 mm). THz radiation is unique because it combines useful properties of both radio waves and infrared waves. THz radiation can be…
