Terahertz collaboration gets boost from Department of Defense grant

A $6.3-million grant from the Department of Defense’s Multidisciplinary Research Initiative (MURI) will allow a group of faculty researchers involved in two of the University of Notre Dame’s strategic research investments — The Center for Nano Science and Technology and the Advanced Diagnostics and Therapeutics Initiative — to develop new gallium nitride (GaN) based electronic devices that operate in the terahertz (THz) range of the electromagnetic spectrum.
