RUB chemists explain the fingerprint of dissolved glycine in the Terahertz range Combination of molecular-dynamics simulations and spectroscopy is key to success Chemists at the Ruhr-Universität Bochum (RUB) have, for the first time, completely analyzed the fingerprint region of the Terahertz spectrum of a biologically relevant molecule in water, in this case, an amino acid. By combining spectroscopy and molecular-dynamics simulations, they rendered the motion of the most basic amino...

Pitt invents the world’s smallest terahertz detector Molecules could soon be “scanned” in a fashion similar to imaging screenings at airports, thanks to a detector developed by University of Pittsburgh physicists. The detector, featured in a recent issue of Nano Letters, may have the ability to chemically identify single molecules using terahertz radiation—a range of light far below what the eye can detect....

Benjamin Clough Is One of Three Finalists for the $30,000 2011 Lemelson-MIT Rensselaer Student Prize Benjamin Clough has developed a novel method for eavesdropping on terahertz information hidden in invisible plasma acoustic bursts. The doctoral student at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute has demonstrated a promising technique that employs sound waves to boost the distance from which researchers can use powerful terahertz technology to remotely detect hidden explosives, chemicals, and other...

U.S. scientists say they've created a technique that uses long-wave terahertz waves to efficiently measure structural properties used in integrated circuits. The researchers at the National Institute of Standards and Technology said their technique is a new approach to measuring key properties of nanoscale metal-oxide films used in high-speed integrated circuits and could become an important quality-control tool to help monitor semiconductor manufacturing processes and evaluate new metal...

The ability of biomolecules to flex and bend is important for the performance of many functions within living cells. However, researchers interested in how biomolecules such as amino acids and proteins function have long had to make inferences from a series of X-ray-like "still pictures" of pure crystalline samples. Now, using a new technique based on terahertz (THz) spectroscopy, scientists at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) have recently taken the first step toward...
