NearSense – Advances Towards a Silicon-Based Terahertz Near-Field Imaging Sensor for Ex Vivo Breast Tumour Identification

This paper present the terahertz near field resonator developed in the framework of Nearsense project and pulse time domain images used to determine the best frequency and design the resonator. Mavarani, L., Hillger, P., Bücher, T., Grzyb, J., Pfeiffer, U. R., Cassar, Q., … & MacGrogan, G. (2018). NearSense–Advances Towards a Silicon-Based Terahertz Near-Field Imaging…

A Solid-State 0.56 THz Near-Field Array for μM-Scale Surface Imaging

We This paper presents a fully-integrated 0.56 THz 128-pixel near-field 1-D sensor array with 10-12 μm lateral resolution. The sensing elements are based two parallel cross-bridged split-ring resonators that utilize a 3-D topology to exhibit high field confinement in the sensing spot. The sensor comprises a scalable excitation scheme that is designed to maximize the…

Study of blood plasma optical properties in mice grafted with Ehrlich carcinoma in the frequency range 0.1 – 1.0 THz*

In the course of in vitro studies of blood of laboratory animals with progressing Ehrlich carcinoma, we have revealed the change of the blood plasma optical properties in the THz range, which can be used for developing the express diagnostics of the presence of oncological diseases. An applied software package is elaborated that allows the…

Terahertz biophotonics as a tool for studies of dielectric and spectral properties of biological tissues and liquids

In this review, we describe dielectric properties of biological tissues and liquids in the context of terahertz (THz) biophotonics. We discuss a model of the THz dielectric permittivity of water and water-containing media, which yields analysis of the relaxation and damped resonant molecules modes. We briefly describe modern techniques of THz spectroscopy and imaging employed in biophotonics with a strong emphasize on a…
