You’ve heard of microwaves, X-rays and infra-red, but what about terahertz?
For over 100 years, scientists and engineers have harnessed different types of electromagnetic radiation to produce technologies with societal benefit, but terahertz has not been as well exploited so far. So, what can it do?
Learn about the exciting possibilities of terahertz and how in the future it could be useful in a wide range of fields – from medicine to arts and heritage.
We’ll delve a little deeper into some of its possible uses, from allowing us to see more of our galaxy and improve our understanding of the Earth’s climate, to helping us better study materials, save energy and create the materials and electronics of the future.
Speakers: Eleanor Nuttall, Lucy Hale (University College London), Nikita Almond (University of Cambridge).
