Handbook of Terahertz Technologies

Devices and Applications

edited by Ho-Jin Song and Tadao Nagatsuma

This timely handbook is a practical and relevant guide to current terahertz (THz) device technologies. It addresses novel THz technologies which go beyond the state-of-the-art of Fourier transform far-infrared spectrometers with regard to frequency bandwidth, signal-to-noise ratio, and applications. It specifically covers THz radiation sources and detectors, functional THz radiation materials, and a selection of applications of THz radiation systems. The concepts are clearly described using text, illustrations, and exemplary results rather than complex mathematical equations. The THz technologies discussed in the book are becoming available as commercial products. This book is a good reference for scientists and engineers who want to make an informed decision about adapting modern THz technologies for their research; has appropriate text for graduate students entering the field of THz technology research; and is a good first introduction to the capabilities of modern THz technologies for professionals in the medical and pharmaceutical sciences.
