Coherent terahertz-wave sources using high-temperature superconductors

The electromagnetic wave with a frequency span of 0.1–10 THz is known to be the most unique area in all electromagnetic spectra. Since terahertz waves have the properties of being able to pass through various objects, such as plastics, paper, ceramics, semiconductors, liquids, and proteins, they enable us to image various cm-by-cm wide substances. Also, since the irradiation damage to soft objects is negligibly small in contrast to the X-ray, there is much demand for the nondestructive and noninvasive imaging technique in the field of the material inspection, medical diagnostic, security check, and environmental monitoring. To realize these applications, my research team is developing compact and solid-state terahertz sources utilizing high-temperature superconductivity. We are now aiming for better device characteristics to promote effective use of superconducting sources in a broad range of fields.
