SiberSci, LLC provides Terahertz Consulting resources for a wide frequency span involving various submillimeter-wave and Terahertz (THz) circuit topologies. SiberSci, LLC provides services for the theoretical analysis, design, development, fabrication, testing, validation, and optimization of :
- transmission lines (microstrip, stripline, co-planar waveguide, coax, rectangular waveguide, cylindrical waveguide, elliptic waveguide,…),
- filters (lowpass, bandpass, highpass, band reject,…),
- resonators (coaxial, cylindrical, rectangular, clam-shell,…),
- delay lines,
- phase shifters,
- impedance matching circuits,
- dielectric lenses,
- parabolic and reflector antennas,
- optical down-conversion nonlinear crystal antennas,
- systems analysis,
- spectroscopy, and
SiberSci is experienced developing Terahertz systems from the low frequency perspective using frequency multipliers, and also using photonic devices to down-convert optical sources to Terahertz frequencies. Each approach has distinct advantages and disadvantages.
Regardless, our experience allows us to review both your performance specifications and size constraints for the defined Terahertz hardware, from which SiberSci can make recommendations for one or more hardware configurations to satisfy these requirements. SiberSci can also review proprietary performance specifications, size constraints, and proposed hardware configurations to determine if these concepts are suitable for the intended application, or determine if the design concepts must be modified to satisfy the stated requirements. Performance and physical limitations for design concepts will be documented during the review process, and modifications to the design concept will be documented to illustrate how the design concepts must be adapted to satisfy the performance and size limitations. If some portion of the performance or size specification is found to be physically impossible to achieve, then these problem areas will be revealed along with recommendations to circumvent these barriers to achieving the requisite performance.
SiberSci, LLC is experienced using Ansys HFSS, CST Microwave Studio, Comsol, SONNET Software, Keysight ADS, and Keysight Genesys to support the Computational ElectroMagnetics (CEM) aspects of these programs. Clients can specify use of one or more of these CEM tools for their project as long as the client provides a valid license for using the code, or pays for contract access to the code of choice. If the client is unable to select the appropriate CEM code for their project, then SiberSci is prepared to assist each client with selecting the appropriate CEM codes(s) to ensure the success of their project.
It is important for each client to realize that the accuracy of CEM simulations are dependent upon the frequency and temperature dependent material properties (conductivity, permittivity, permeability,…) of the metals and dielectrics used for fabricating their circuits, so these material properties must be measured so they can be included in the CEM simulations. Laboratory and contract resources are available to determine these material properties, which are essential for providing accurate CEM simulations of circuits and systems. SiberSci can provide each client with the capability to only use valid material properties for their CEM simulations.
In conclusion, please submit your inquiry for an Terahertz Consulting project to Dr. Scott Best, and clearly specify if a Non-Disclosure Agreement (NDA) is required to protect your business sensitive, Intellectual Property (IP), or Proprietary Data (PD). SiberSci will provide a NDA for review, negotiation, and amendment by the client to safeguard and protect their IP and PD. SiberSci will also provide a budgetary quotation and schedule for performing the client defined Terahertz Consulting effort after reviewing the performance and size requirements. Work on the Terahertz Consulting project will commence when a contract has been negotiated and legally executed by SiberSci and the client.Terahertz-Consultant-CV-for-Dr.-Scott-Best-November-2015
