Terahertz polarizer nears perfection Researchers at Rice University are using carbon nanotubes as the critical component of a robust terahertz polarizer that could accelerate the development of new security and communication devices, sensors and non-invasive medical imaging systems as well as fundamental studies of low-dimensional condensed matter systems. The polarizer developed by the Rice lab of Junichiro Kono, a professor of electrical and computer engineering and of physics and...

Rice lab makes solid material transparent to terahertz waves Very often in science, the unexpected discovery turns out to be the most significant. Rice University Professor Junichiro Kono and his team weren't looking for a breakthrough in the transmission of terahertz signals, but there it was: a plasmonic material that would, with adjustments to its temperature and/or magnetic field, either stop a terahertz beam cold or let it pass completely. The finding by Kono, a professor in electrical...
