Paper Abstract

There are three major challenges in cancer imaging using terahertz electromagnetic waves, which are the limited penetration depth into wet tissues, the difficulty to observe terahertz fingerprints (resonance markers) of cancers, and the poor contrast between healthy and diseased tissues. This presentation addresses such issues in detail and explains the potential solutions to them with recent results.
