Title of the thesis: Study and conception of photogenerated metamaterial devices for

the dynamical control of THz waves

Supervisor : Pr. Emmanuel Centeno

Laboratory : Institut Pascal

University : Univeristé Clermont AUvergne

Email and Phone : emmanuel.centeno@uca.fr, + 33 (4) 73 40 53 69

University : Université Montpellier

Summary :

The terahertz (THz) domain of the electromagnetic spectrum constitutes a major

challenge for the development of new technologies for communications, health and safety.

In recent years significant progress has been made in the design of THz sources. However,

the demand for photonic components capable of addressing a wide spectral range (0.1-

10THz) with fast and contrasted responses remains significant. Among the solutions

considered, artificial structures based on electromagnetic resonators called metamaterials

have shown possibilities of controlling THz signals [1]. Dynamic control is envisaged with

photogenerated metamaterials in a semiconductor layer [2] but with limitations in terms of

modulation frequency and pump energy. In a first work carried out jointly between the

Photon axis of the Pascal Institute (IP) and the Institute of Electronics and Systems (IES),

we have demonstrated theoretically [3] then experimentally the amplitude modulation of

a THz beam by using a laser in quasi-continuous low energy power regime (about W.cm-2).

These first results lift the locks on the high power of the optical pump and the modulation

frequency.

The objective of the thesis concerns the study and design of photogenerated

metamaterials in dynamic regime for the spatial and temporal control of THz waves. The

doctoral student will model and design photogenerated metamaterials at the IP, will

participate in the stages of manufacturing prototypes in clean rooms and their

characterization in the THz field at the IES. He / she should have good knowledge in

electromagnetism, in semiconductor physics and must be interested in both modeling and

experimental implementation.
