Terahertz Technology- New Challenges, New Solutions

Terahertz (=THz) radiation is electromagnetic radiation located between the low-frequency far-infrared and the high-frequency microwave parts of the spectrum (from 0.3 to 3 x 1012 Hz, with a wavelength from 10 micrometers to 1 mm). THz radiation is unique because it combines useful properties of both radio waves and infrared waves. THz radiation can be…
