Brief description High-mobility, low-dimensional electronic systems (HMLDES) are of importance in developing the next generation of electronics, photonics and plasmonics. This is due to their very rapid response time and their strong coupling with the electromagnetic field. This project will investigate the electronic and optical properties of HMLDES in the terahertz frequency regime in a search for a new mechanisms leading to terahertz emission and detection. This fundamental research on charge dynamics, plasmonics and non-linear optical processes in HMLDES will link electronics and optics, paving the way for new HMLDES-based terahertz electronic, photonic and plasmonic devices that will significantly expand terahertz technology to the benefit of all Australians.
