Abstract

The OPTHER (Optically Driven THz amplifier) project supported by the European Commission within the Seventh Framework Program (FP7) represents the first joint European attempt to realize vacuum electron devices in THz range. The target of the project was to design and realize the first 1 THz vacuum tube amplifier. The challenges of the presented task and the innovative solutions adopted established a new level of knowledge in the field. The main aspects of the
OPTHER project are described, focusing on challenges and adopted innovative solutions.
