In recent years, new applications in Terahertz (THz) imaging, spectroscopy, ranging and telecommunication had initiated huge research interest in THz emitting devices. There were few suitable sources available, however, in the THz frequency range (1-10 THz). Thus more powerful terahertz sources were strongly desired, especially with higher operating temperatures. This dissertation described two THz emitting devices based on Si and SiC materials that demonstrated much higher operating temperatures than what was previously published.Chapter 6 DNA DETECTION 6.1 DNA basics Deoxyribo Nucleic Acid (DNA) molecules carry the genetic information of living things as instructions to construct components of cells. It determines how one species differ from the other. DNA molecules are double-helix structured and are made up of building blocks called nucleotides. A nucleotide consists of a deoxyribose pentose sugar, a phosphateanbsp;...
