Plasmonic terahertz imaging and spectroscopy systems
In this talk, I will give an overview of the unique applications of terahertz waves for chemical identification, material characterization, biomedical sensing and diagnostics and describe the state of the existing terahertz imaging and sensing technologies and their limitations. I will introduce a game changing technology that enables high performance, low cost, and compact terahertz spectroscopy and imaging systems for various applications. More specifically, I will introduce plasmonic terahertz imaging and spectroscopy systems, which offer several orders of magnitude higher signal-to-noise ratio levels compared to the state of the art.
