Dual-comb laser driven terahertz spectrometer for industrial sensing

Project description

Novel technology lights the way to cost-effective terahertz investigation of materials

Among the many useful light–matter interactions is the absorption of different wavelengths of light by different ions or molecules. Optical absorption spectroscopy takes advantage of this phenomenon to provide fundamental information about materials without contacting, altering or harming the material of interest. The applications are virtually limitless. Optical absorption spectroscopy in the terahertz region of the electromagnetic spectrum takes all existing advantages to a new level and adds more. However, the driving laser is currently quite costly and complex. The EU-funded DC-THz project is planning to remedy that with its pioneering laser technology.
