Principles of Terahertz Science and Technology

Authors: Lee, Yun-Shik

  • Utilizes a ‘back-to-basics’ approach which reviews the fundamental concepts of THz optical science rather than detailing current THz research
  • Written by a single author to ensure an organized, coherent, generalized text, as opposed to other books on THz science which are collections of review articles and specialized research
  • Targets new researchers of THz science, so it includes practical contents useful for initiating research

About this book

Principles of Terahertz Science and Technology aims to elucidate the fundamentals of THz technology and science for potential new users. It surveys major techniques of generating, detecting, and manipulating THz waves and also discusses a number of essential processes where THz waves interact with physical, chemical, and biological systems. This book serves as an introduction to THz technology for new researchers in various fields.

Many different disciplines, such as ultrafast spectroscopy, semiconductor device fabrication, bio-medical imaging and more, involve the recent development of THz technology. It is necessary to lay down a strong, common foundation among researchers, so that communication can proceed smoothly. Previous THz research activities have concentrated on generation and detection, but the focus has now shifted to practical applications of this technology, such as high-speed optoelectronic signal processing and molecular spectroscopy.

Drawing upon years of practical experience and using numerous examples and illustrative applications Yun-Shik Lee discusses

  • The major techniques of generating, detecting, and manipulating THz waves
  • Essential processes where THz waves interact with physical, chemical, and biological systems
  • Medical Applications of T-Ray Imaging including, optical properties of human tissue, cancer diagnostics, reflective imaging of skin burns and detection of dental caries

Principles of Terahertz Science and Technology is an ideal book for applied physicists, microwave engineers, biomedical engineers, electrical engineers, and analytical chemists interested in the fundamentals and applications of THz engineering.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“This book provides a useful and self-contained introduction to the generation, detection and exploitation of THz radiation in circumstances where a free-electron laser is not available. … The clear exposition of the theory of THz devices described here will … stand the reader in good stead for understanding these more modern developments.” (P. T. Greenland, Contemporary Physics, Vol. 53 (6), 2012)

“This book contains a wide range of topics and fundamental issues on THz technology. … The author provides a good blend of technical depth, explanations, experimental examples, and illustrations to clearly convey the material being presented. … Newcomers can quickly become familiar … with this well-written book. This book, with its broad appeal to a diverse group of researchers … would be an excellent choice for those interested in learning about the fundamentals of THz technology and the potential for this new area of research.” (IEEE Electrical Insulation Magazine, Vol. 26 (4), July/August, 2010)
