French researchers have developed and successfully tested a terahertz system capable of transmitting data at a rate of 32 GB per second at 0.4 THz.
Recent News & Anouncements:
Using detailed simulations, Jülich scientists showed how the wavelengths and polarization of the generated terahertz radiation can be controlled via a strong external magnetic field.
Quantum dot and silicon-based laser could exploit near infra red bands
Caltech chemists have developed a precise ruler of terahertz light that will aid in the study of organic molecules in space, and the soft interactions between molecules in water. Due to its resemblance to a hair comb, the ruler is called a terahertz frequency comb.
