THz Attenuators

    • The attenuator set is ideal for applications where the terahertz signal needs to be attenuated to prevent detector saturation.


    • Additionally; the broad, flat transmission spectrum shown in figure 1 below makes this set good for both broad spectrum THz and BWO scanning applications. Whether the source is a photoconductive antenna, free electron laser, or backwards wave oscillator this attenuator set with its sputter coated thin film elements is capable of attenuating the signal uniformly.


    • The set consists of 4 thin film attenuators mounted for easy and rapid deployment. The external diameter of the attenuators are 68mm, and the clear aperture is 60mm. These attenuators may be used as single attenuators or in combination as needed giving additional flexibility and range. The four attenuators are 30%, 10%, 3%, and 1% transmission. The attenuation combinations possible are given in the table below.
