About this event

Do you have new research or results in aspects of millimetre-wave and terahertz engineering? If yes, then this is your chance to showcase your latest work to industry and academia experts expected to attend.

This Call for Contributions event provides the opportunity for networking with key people in the area with the presence of industrial leaders.

The millimetre-wave and terahertz regions of the electromagnetic spectrum have recently attracted new interest with new applications beginning to appear such as communications, non-destructive testing and medical imaging.

The availability of higher power solid state sources, more efficient multipliers and room temperature detectors is pushing the boundary of solid state systems to 1 THz, opening up a raft of commercially driven industrial applications. The emergence of 5G communications and E-band radios is providing a cost-effective entry into the lower millimetre wave part of the spectrum.

Quantum Cascade Lasers (QCLs) operating at ever higher temperatures are becoming a practical alternative to gas lasers for the multi-terahertz region.

New machining and fabrication techniques such as 3D printing coupled with powerful finite element analysis and testing capability offers further reductions in cost and more complicated system architectures.

Call for Contributions is now open and for the first time, no formal abstract is required. Simply email your proposed talk title and up to 500 words about what you want to present to ietconferences@theiet.org by 15 December 2017 invited from the following areas, but not exclusively:

  • Medical
  • Security
  • Non-destructive testing
  • Imaging
  • Sensing
  • Mixers
  • Sources
  • Multiplier systems
  • Antennas
  • Optics
  • Communications
  • Remote sensing
  • Passive and active imaging and radars
  • Quantum cascade lasers
  • III-V materials and components
  • Frequency selective surfaces and photonic bandgap materials
  • Novel fabrication, testing and design techniques

Benefits of submitting

Show case your latest work to industry and academia experts
Opportunity to present in front of highly respected professionals

In addition, presenters at this colloquium will be given the opportunity to submit a detailed technical paper, describing their work, for consideration for inclusion in a Special Issue of the IET Microwaves, Antennas & Propagation journal.
These papers must follow the IET’s Manuscript Preparation Guidelines and will be subject to the journal’s normal peer-review procedures.


This is a Call for Contributions event. A finalised programme will be made available in due course.

Reasons to attend

This event would be of interest to people who may have an interest or are working within the following areas: applications in science, engineering and technology that exploit the microwave, millimetre-wave, terahertz and optical regions of the electromagnetic spectrum. Key technologies are electronics and photonics.
