The THz domain extending approximately from 100 GHz to 10 THz can be considered as a link between electronics and photonics. Since the beginning of the 1990s this field was growing first with the development of time-domain spectroscopy and now is becoming more and more attractive with the emergence of new technologies: quantum cascade lasers, nano-transistors, photomixing, mixers, frequency multipliers and material systems like novel semiconductor heterostructures exploiting nitride, zinc oxide based heterostructures, 2D nanostructures and van der Walls layered heterostructures. These materials and devices have already found many applications in different systems exploiting unique properties of the THz region of the electromagnetic spectrum. The optical excitation and control of spins in magnetic materials and structures opens new prospects for merging of spin-based devices and ultrafast photonic processing whereas terahertz spectroscopy presents an ideal tool for the study of spin dynamics in magnetic materials. Furthermore, novel optical and photonic systems recently emerged to further extend the THz research field to the investigations of phenomena at the nanoscale. Among the new trends in the THz technology there also are tunable, compact THz gas lasers, THz optical components manufactured with 3d printing, chip-level THz signal generation, THz imaging with a single pixel camera etc.

The conference is intended to provide a forum for scientists, engineers, and researchers from a diverse set of disciplines who are interested in presenting their last achievements in this field. The scope of the conference includes sources and detectors of THz radiation, optical components, optical and photonic systems, near field microscopy as well as different applications exploiting this technology.
