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

Date and Time

15 March 2019 - 09:00-17:00

Organised by the RF & Microwave Engineering TPN. Contact Poppy Seamarks at PSeamarks@theiet.org or on 01438 767304 for more information.

About this event

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.

This colloquium will provide the latest insight from leaders in their fields as to the direction the technology and commercial outlook is likely to take.

Call for Contributions is now open, 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 07 December 2018. Please ensure you quote the event title in the subject line. 

Key dates and deadlines:

  • Call for contributions deadline: 7 December 2018
  • Acceptance notification: Week of 7 January 2019
  • Event Date: 15 March 2019
