Paper Abstract

Major applications of electromagnetic waves in the 100 - 1000 GHz range are developing, in earth-remote-sensing, high-temperature plasma heating and diagnostics, high-definition radar, and astronomy. These applications require high performance levels not only in the receivers and sources but also in the directional quality of the beams that are transmitted or received. These are formed by optical systems which, in addition to shaping the beams, may be required to provide various signal conditioning or analysis steps, such as frequency and polarisation multiplexing, radiometric calibration or spectral analysis.
