Langhals, Heinz (26. April 2014): Handling Electromagnetic Radiation beyond Terahertz using Chromophores to Transition from Visible Light to Petahertz Technology. In: Journal of Electrical & Electronic Systems, Vol. 3, Nr. 2: S. 125-133




An increase of the operating frequencies of electromagnetic waves leads from the well-estalished terahertz technology to the visual and reaches petahertz radiation. It is shown that electromagnetic radiation close to petahertz is attractive for technology where knowledge about radio waves can be applied. The dimensions of such radiation are still classically macroscopic; however, molecular components such as resonators were used where quantum mechanics rules have to be considered. Constructions of coupled resonators for energy transfer are as well demonstrated as molecular components for optical metamaterials.
