Member of the THz Science and Technology crew, Pd.D. student Pernille Klarskov, has received a prestigious 300.000 DKK (50.000 USD) Award from the Danish Council for Independent research.

The Award will enable Pernille Klarskov to visit the group of Prof. X.-C. Zhang at the Institute of Optics, Rochester University, during 2014. During this research visit, Pernille will be investigating nonlinear interactions between intense THz waves and molecular crystals, as part of the HI-TERA project.

The Elite Research Travel Award was handed over to Pernille Klarskov by the Danish Minister for Research and Education at a ceremony in Copenhagen on February 6, 2014.

A picture of the recipients of the travel Award together with HRH, Crown Princess Mary and the Minister of Research and Education, can be found here. Pernille Klarskov is No. 7 from the left.


Based on a Master project carried out by Casper Larsen we have published a paper in Journal of the Optical Society of America B. In connection with that we have released the simulation tool for finite-difference time-domain (FDTD) simulation of time-resolved THz spectroscopy experiments which was used in the paper.

The code is available as freeware, under very favorable conditions – cite us if you use it.

The THz crew from DTU Fotonik will present 3 keynote lectures, 1 contributed talk, and 2 posters at the Infrared and Millimeter Waves Conference (IRMMW 2010) in Rome, Italy, on September 5-10, 2010.

We will report on our latest results on

  • time-resolved THz spectroscopy of black silicon (Henrik Porte),
  • THz radar cross section measurements of airplanes (Krzysztof Iwaszczuk),
  • THz emission patterns from microring resonators (Peter Uhd Jepsen),
  • advanced THz imaging concepts (Peter Uhd Jepsen),
  • how to get the strongest THz signal out of zinc telluride by proper prechirping of the pump laser pulse (Peter Uhd Jepsen)
  • a new design for a broadband THz 3-dB coupler based on photonic crystal fibers (Kristian Nielsen)
