Paper Abstract

This paper has successfully setup a calibration system for terahertz devices at frequencies from 0.11 THz to 0.17 THz in waveguide WR6.5. The system consists of a terahertz wave generator, a power meter, a digital oscilloscope and a computer, and is able to accomplish calibrations for some devices automatically. Calibrations of a 10 dB attenuator, a 20 dB directional coupler, and a Schottky diode detector are carried out by the system and a detailed discussion is given to the results. The results obtained have shown that the characteristics of the devices under calibrated remained essentially the same throughout the experiment and met rather good agreement to the factory data. Due to the use of GPIB, it is proved that the system can also improve the efficiency of work greatly. The calibration approach described in this paper can be a necessary supplement to the other calibration techniques and play an important role in terahertz measurement especially at lower frequencies.
