Are you up for trying to make a world record in your BSc/MSc project?

If yes, this might be something for you.

Introduction: Terahertz (THz) is a part of the electromagnetic spectrum that has been thoroughly studied in science but sparsely exploited in industry. The great interest in THz for research purposes stems from the fact that THz has some unique properties, i.e., that the radiation interacts relatively weakly with a wide range of materials. Thereby, the radiation can penetrate deep into the materials. By measuring the radiation after the interaction, there is access to a wide range of information about the material—and not just information from the surface, as is often the case with other parts of the electromagnetic spectrum. THz can uncover information about materials' composition, thickness, conductivity, chemical reactivity, and much more.

To use THz radiation outside of a scientific laboratory, it is paramount to have a robust and small system. To this day, no THz laser systems exist that conform to these two criteria. This has led to an extensive range of untapped potential for THz radiation in real-world applications, which can be accessed with the right THz laser system.

The project: In this project, the student will demonstrate, for the first time, a groundbreaking new THz laser system that can fit in the palm of a hand. In contrast, available commercial systems take up an entire desktop and can only be operated inside controlled laboratory conditions. The new THz laser system will potentially disrupt the global THz market and be one of the key drivers for the widespread adoption of THz technology in the broader industry.

The new THz laser system will be based on experience from DTU Electro. For the past five years, we have developed a new technology platform for a THz laser system called “Cross-Correlation Spectroscopy” (THz-CCS). It is this platform that we wish to take to new heights. The platform consists of optics, lasers, electronics, and mechanics – the student will therefore be exposed to a broad range of science and engineering disciplines and be challenged with understanding and putting them all together in a functional way.

In practice, the student will build her/his knowledge of all system parts by setting them up on a breadboard and characterizing them. The optical components will be coupled with optical fibers and are, therefore, safe to work with. The student will design a suitable translational movement stage based on a voice coil actuator in the mechanical setup. The design will be realized as a CAD model and manufactured by our mechanical workshop. The electronics will be given to the student in a prototype version, and the student will have to assess how to implement it optimally regarding electromagnetic shielding and robustness to the environment. When all parts are assembled and fully functional on a breadboard, the student will design the final THz laser system packaging and put everything together in a form factor that fits in the palm of a hand. If time allows, the new system will be tested in the field to showcase its superiority to current state-of-the-art THz technology.

The team: This project will be carried out in our newly established THz Innovation Center at DTU Electro. The center consists of 8 researchers with different backgrounds, all working together to make THz technology available to everyone worldwide. The student will be part of the group’s day-to-day work, which ensures a large amount of support. The student is also invited to partake in the group’s social activities, such as everyday lunches, after-work beers, etc.

This project's scope is well suited for an MSc thesis for one student or a BSc thesis where two students form a group. One very ambitious and skilled BSc student can also undertake it in a 20 ECTS point project.

Prerequisites: The activities to be conducted requires that the student is both well-accomplished academically and is driven by curiosity in all her/his work. No particular courses are required. Whatever knowledge the student will be needing, our extensive team will teach.

More information: We would love to meet with interested students for a cup of coffee and to explain the project in more detail. If interested, please send an e-mail to Simon at [email protected]
