Abstract: This paper presents an overview of the measurement capabilities currently from dc to 500 GHz at the “THz-Lab” at New York University (NYU). This multiuser facility, a product of collaboration with UC Boulder, UN Lincoln, Florida IU, and the IDEAS group at ETH-Zurich, was funded by a $3M National Science Foundation grant to facilitate a broad range of THz research with essential THz metrology. The facility is equipped to characterize THz integrated circuits, on-chip THz antenna arrays, THz channel propagation, intelligent reflective surfaces, and novel materials-based electronics. Laboratory resources include wafer probe stations, frequency converters, RF front-end modules, and a suite of state-of-the-art test and measurement equipment for THz circuits and devices that may be checked out short-term for researchers to use and return under U.S. export controls.
