Manijeh Razeghi group terahertz discovery could speed security and agricultural screening

30 September 2011

Researchers at Northwestern University have developed a simpler wayJPEG to generate single-chip terahertz radiation, a discovery that could soon allow for more rapid security screening, border protection, high sensitivity biological/chemical analysis, agricultural inspection, and astronomical applications.

The work, headed by SPIE Fellow Manijeh Razeghi, Walter P. Murphy Professor of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science in the McCormick School of Engineering and Applied Science, was presented in August at SPIE Optics + Photonics in San Diego
