The obvious benefit of practical application of terahertz radiation in medicine, security systems, astrophysics, chemistry and many other fields of human activity has created a natural demand for research and development of this field of science, since the production of terahertz components still has high complexity and labor-intensive process, and because of this, and high production costs.

Currently, Tera-ray detectors embedded carbon nanotubes, which have, unfortunately, low reproducibility and relatively long production process that postpones the possibility of their widespread use for a period of eliminating the problems described above. Earlier detection devices that use nanotube typically include a number of individual nanotubes randomly dispersed on the surface of a preformed electrical contacts or electrical contacts, superimposed on the dispersed nanotubes. Both methods are fully functional and are very good. However, the methods that are used today, it is impossible to conduct high-precision measurements, and devices that rely on them do not have that degree of sensitivity is possible when implementing nanotubes.

Obviously, the use of carbon nanotubes will allow to solve a number of problems associated with a lack of precision, the need to reduce the size of devices, and other important factors.

Student Theses at HSE must be completed in accordance with the University Rules and regulations specified by each educational programme.

Summaries of all theses must be published and made freely available on the HSE website.

The full text of a thesis can be published in open access on the HSE website only if the authoring student (copyright holder) agrees, or, if the thesis was written by a team of students, if all the co-authors (copyright holders) agree. After a thesis is published on the HSE website, it obtains the status of an online publication.

Student theses are objects of copyright and their use is subject to limitations in accordance with the Russian Federation’s law on intellectual property.

In the event that a thesis is quoted or otherwise used, reference to the author’s name and the source of quotation is required.
