Research ThemesThe group has organized its research in several tracks or research themes, each consisting of a number of related projects.
The European Research Council has awarded associate professor Nuria Llombart Juan of the Tera Hertz Sensing group a prestigious starting grant (1.5 million euros) for her research proposal “Lens antenna arrays for THz coherent cameras”.
The European Research Council has awarded SRON researchers Jochem Baselmans, visiting professor of the Tera Hertz Sensing group of the Department Microelelctronics (2.4 million euros) and Peter Jonker (2 million euros) prestigious research grants for independent groundbreaking research.
Advanced Antenna Architectures
The Tera-Hertz portion of the spectrum presents unique potentials for advanced applications. Currently the THz spectrum is revealing the mechanisms at the origin of our universe and provides the means to monitor the health of our planet via satellite based sensing of critical gases.
