Miniature device produces powerful Terahertz light. Cleveland, OH (PRWEB) May 15, 2014 Culminating a ten-year development effort, Teraphysics Corporation scientists have demonstrated the emission of Terahertz light by passing electron beams through a gold coil, smaller in diameter than a human hair, supported by a diamond structure. The detection of a Terahertz signal provided proof of concept for Teraphysics’ suite of microfabricated vacuum electronic devices. The Terahertz frequency...

Medical diagnostic and security scanners with higher sensitivity could result from University of Adelaide research into detecting T-rays (terahertz waves). Published in the journal Advanced Optical Materials, the researchers describe a novel structure which traps terahertz waves in tiny (micro-scale) holes to produce much higher contrast imaging than currently possible. Terahertz waves, which are electromagnetic waves with frequencies between those used for mobile phone communications...

New Terahertz Chips For New Devices

Lee Rannals for redOrbit.com — Your Universe Online A new set of microchips designed at the California Institute of Technology pave the way for a new generation of devices. The chips created by the Caltech engineers generate and radiate high-frequency electromagnetic waves known as terahertz (THz). These waves fall between microwaves and far-infrared radiation and are able to penetrate materials without damaging them, unlike X-rays. The new microchips could be incorporated...

Researchers from the University of Notre Dame in Indiana have harnessed another one of graphene´s remarkable properties to better control a relatively untamed portion of the electromagnetic spectrum: the terahertz band. Terahertz radiation offers tantalizing new opportunities in communications, medical imaging, and chemical detection. Straddling the transition between the highest energy radio waves and the lowest energy infrared light, terahertz waves are notoriously difficult to...

Researchers at Northwestern University have created a new kind of cloaking material that can render objects invisible in the terahertz range. Though this design can´t translate into an invisibility cloak for the visible spectrum, it could have implications in diagnostics, security, and communication. The cloak, designed by Cheng Sun, assistant professor of mechanical engineering at Northwestern´s McCormick School of Engineering and Applied Science, uses microfabricated...

Word of the Day
out-herod
  • In the phrase to out-herod Herod, to be more violent than Herod (as represented in the old mystery plays); hence, to exceed in any excess of evil.
Herod refers to 'Herod the Great,' a Roman client king and 'a madman who murdered his own family and a great many rabbis.' According to the OED, the term is 'chiefly with allusion to Shakespeare's use' in Hamlet.
