Basque Research There are objects we cannot see within the range of the visible but which we can with imaging systems that use the terahertz (THz) wavelength. Within this range we can detect, for example, not only a foreign body hidden under clothing, but also determine what material it is made of. David Etayo, a telecommunications engineer and PhD holder of the NUP/UPNA-Public University of Navarre, has been able to identify explosive components not only in their pure state, but also, and...

Light Converted To Sound For Weapons Detection, Medical Imaging
2014-05-20 03:22:07

Nicole Casal Moore, University of Michigan A device that essentially listens for light waves could help open up the last frontier of the electromagnetic spectrum—the terahertz range. So-called T-rays, which are light waves too long for human eyes to see, could help airport security guards find chemical and other weapons. They might let doctors image body tissues with less damage to healthy areas. And they could give astronomers new tools to study planets in other solar systems. Those...

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...

First Phononic Crystal That Can Be Altered In Real Time Announced By Researchers
2014-04-01 15:19:08

University of Bristol Using an acoustic metadevice that can influence the acoustic space and can control any of the ways in which waves travel, engineers have demonstrated, for the first time, that it is possible to dynamically alter the geometry of a three-dimensional colloidal crystal in real time. The colloidal crystals designed in the study, called metamaterials, are artificially structured materials that extend the properties of existing naturally occurring materials and...

Palatine, IL (PRWEB) March 31, 2014 eAccess Solutions originally distinguished themselves as the first company in the United States to open an on-line store for BlackBerry. After numerous successful departures from their original flagship store, eAccess is once again banking heavily on the...

World's First Acoustic Field Rotator May Help Improve Imaging Capabilities Of Medical Ultrasound Devices
2014-02-26 15:35:43

American Institute of Physics A Chinese-U.S. research team is exploring the use of metamaterials -- artificial materials engineered to have exotic properties not found in nature -- to create devices that manipulate sound in versatile and unprecedented ways. In the journal Applied Physics Letters, the team reports a simple design for a device, called an acoustic field rotator, which can twist wavefronts inside it so that they appear to be propagating from another direction. "Numerous...
