Hammler, J. and Pan, Y. and Gallant, A.J. and Balocco, C. (2015) '3D polymer structures with variable permittivity at terahertz frequencies.', in 40th International Conference on Infrared, Millimeter, and Terahertz Waves (IRMMW-THz), 23-28 August 2015, Hong Kong. Piscataway: IEEE, pp. 1-2.
Titanium dioxide (TiO2) powder has been blended with polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS) to manufacture a composite polymer with variable permittivity. Vector network analyser measurements taken between 0.75-1.1 THz quantify the relationship between TiO2 concentration and complex permittivity of the resultant material. Complex 3D structures have been produced with a casting process. Applications for the tunable-permittivity polymer include dielectric regions in photonic and plasmonic devices operating at terahertz frequencies as well as single pixel imaging systems.
