Dirac Semimetals based Terahertz Components

Project description

An innovative light and matter combination unleashes unprecedented potential

Terahertz (THz) photonics technologies exploit the electromagnetic frequency range between microwave and infrared, a range that penetrates fabric and plastic. They are garnering widespread interest for applications in fields including non-destructive testing, biomedicine, telecommunications and security and defence. The EU-funded DiSeTCom project will develop novel THz photonics components based on one of the most exciting new classes of 2D nanomaterials around, 2D Dirac semimetals including graphene. These materials are themselves attracting attention for their fascinating electronic and optoelectronic properties and easy integration with existing technologies. The winning combination promises unprecedented performance.
