Planar THz GaN Gunn nanodiodes based Emitter/Receiver for ultra high speed communications – GANGUN

Submission summary

GaNGUN The project aims to achieve a THz oscillator based on Self-Switching Diodes (SSD) in gallium nitride. SSD devices (GaN based) have been shown to have to capability to produce current oscillations at 300 GHz, under specific conditions and topologies (strong polarization). Based on technological SSD results already obtained within consortium, up to 325 GHz for THz detectors, GaNGUN proposes new epitaxial structures, new topologies and integration into a guiding structure to achieve this THz oscillator. To achieve this goal, simulation skills, materials growth, technological processes and characterization have been merged in this international project.
