You can find here an overview about terahertz waves. The different articles below present the properties of these waves, the applications, the sources and detectors as well as various information on the terahertz community.

Frequency from 100 GHz to 10 THz, wavelenght from 3mm to 30µm , crosses most dielectrics, absorbed by water, total reflection on metal and non ionising

What is terahertz?

Terahertz frequency band Terahertz (THz) waves is a part of the electromagnetic spectrum between infrared and microwave radiation corresponding to wavelenghts from 3 mm to 100 µm. In the frequency domain, it consists of the band from 100 GHz to 30 THz (See Fig 1.). For 1 Thz, wavelenght is about 300 µm, photo energy…
