  • Determining the terahertz optical properties of subwavelength films using semiconductor surface plasmons 

    Isaac, Thomas Henry; Barnes, William L.; Hendry, Euan (American Institute of Physics, 2008)
    By employing a combination of time-domain measurements and numerical calculations, we demonstrate that the semiconductor InSb supports a strongly confined surface plasmon (SP) in the terahertz frequency range. We show that ...
  • Surface plasmon mediated transmission of subwavelength slits at THz frequencies 

    Isaac, Thomas Henry; Gómez Rivas, J.; Sambles, J. Roy; Barnes, William L.; Hendry, Euan (American Physical Society, 2008)
    We present measurements and a numerical modeling that elucidate the role of surface plasmons in the resonant transmission of a subwavelength slit in a conducting material. By using THz time domain spectroscopy, we determine ...
  • Tuneable Fabry–Perot etalon for terahertz radiation 

    Jewell, Sharon A.; Hendry, Euan; Isaac, Thomas Henry; Sambles, J. Roy (Institute of Physics and Deutsche Physikalische Gesellschaft, 2008)
    An indium tin oxide-clad liquid crystal filled Fabry–Perot etalon structure has been shown to act as an effective narrow-band filter at terahertz frequencies. An applied voltage, which controls the alignment of the nematic ...
