Asst. Prof. Williams gets an NSF Career Award
Assistant Professor Benjamin Williams has been selected to receive the NSF CAREER Award for the project, Widely Tunable Monolithic THz Waveguides, Lasers, and Arrays. This award will fund research on new ways to tune the wavelength of a terahertz semiconductor laser across a broad fractional bandwidth. If successful, it will result in compact and frequency-agile sources of terahertz radiation that could potentially be used in a wide variety of applications for spectroscopy, sensing, and imaging. A major goal of Prof. Williams’ research is to develop new components and technologies for the terahertz frequency range, in order to allow use of this relatively untapped region of the electromagnetic spectrum.
