Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

The ability to integrate antennas in silicon at mmWave and THz frequencies creates an interesting opportunity for a fundamentally new class of active and reconfigurable electromagnetic systems at these frequencies. Being able to realize radiating surfaces on-chip in close proximity with millions of active devices that can synthesize and detect signals at these frequencies with high precision allows us to move away from the classical partitioned block-by-block design approach in favor of a more holistic one. Active sub-wavelength synthesis and sensing on-chip at mm-Wave and THz frequencies can enable new forms of multi-functional electromagnetic (EM) structures for signal generation and reception for fully integrated, high-performance THz systems-onchip. In this paper, we highlight a few examples from phased arrays on chip to imaging and source-free spectroscopes that exploit this concept of sub-wavelength synthesis and sensing to enable ultra-miniaturization and integration.
