Description

In Cologne, high resolution, broadband scanning spectroscopy with microwave accuracy has been extended into the terahertz region (λ < 0.3 mm) by stabilization of continuously tunable backward wave oscillators (BWOs) from Russian fabrication. Precise measurements have been performed up to 1.3 THz, a frequency which has never been reached before directly using microwave techniques, i.e. without generation of harmonics. ...more
