TeraHertz (THz), the frequencies between electronics and optics, was until recently the last unexploited part of the electro-magnetic spectrum. The harnessing of THz-based technologies has the potential of impacting globally a vast number of industries, like both electronics in the 70's and optics in the 80's did. THz applications span over a wide array of fields, including:
- Quality Control and Non-destructive testing
- Surface analysis
- Security
- Chemical and Bio-Medical analysis
- Telecommunications
Filling the Terahertz "gap" has led to unprecedented creativity in the development and commercialization of TeraHertz sources, transmission components and detectors. This course is a unique opportunity to network with specialists, converge know-how, and scout for innovative applications.
