Founded in 1737, Georg-August-Universität Göttingen is a research university of international renown with strong focuses in research-led teaching. The University is distinguished by the rich diversity of its subject spectrum particularly in the humanities, its excellent facilities for the pursuit of scientific research, and the outstanding quality of the areas that define its profile. From 2007 to 2012 Georg-August-Universität Göttingen was rewarded funding from the Initiative of Excellence of the German Federal and State Governments with its institutional strategy for the future entitled “Göttingen.Tradition – Innovation – Autonomy”. The University was able to realise all measures of the concept. Now Göttingen University will develop the successfully established measures further to continously advance the University’s positive developments in research and teaching.

New THz Sources from Spinelectronic Devices

What we offer

We investigate new Terahertz (THz)- spinelectronic devices as sources for the emission of radiation. Our know-how is the development magnetic tunnel junction nanodevices. These can be used as magnetic memory devices or sensors. They are known as oscillators in the GHz frequency range as microwave generator.
We investigate the capability to extend their frequency range to the THz spectral range. This would allow the development of easy to use and cheap nanoscale THz emitter. In the tunnel junction the THz dynamics is driven by a CD current. New THz sources are because of its high potential for various applications of high technological interest.
