Infrared and Millimeter Waves is a series of books that compiles the work of several authors, with each volume focusing on certain aspects of infrared and millimeter waves, such as sources of radiation, instrumentation, and millimeter systems. Organized into seven chapters, the book discusses topics that are relevant to submillimeter techniques. The first chapter is a review of submillimeter and short millimeter wave-detection techniques. The next chapter covers the optimization of Schottky-barrier diodes, and the following chapter covers pyroelectricity. The fourth chapter covers photon drag, while the fifth chapter covers electrically excited submillimeter-wave lasers. The sixth and seventh chapters discuss submillimeter magneto spectroscopy and cyclotron resonance, respectively. This book will be of great use to researchers and professionals whose work involves infrared and millimeter waves.
