About this book

Introduction

Introduction to THz Wave Photonics examines the science and technology related to terahertz wave technologies, taking a dual approach between presenting the field’s history while simultaneously providing an overview of existing technology. The latest research in developing THz areas such as electromagnetic waves are presented, along with an introduction to continuous wave THz technology. Authors X.-C. Zhang and Jingzhou Xu place particular emphasis on pulsed THz technology, among many other facets of THz technology including:

  • Complete coverage of THz wave spectroscopy and imaging
  • A discussion of 3D THz wave imaging
  • Applications of THz technology in the security field as related to explosives and hazardous materials
  • THz applications in bio-engineering and biomedicine

Introduction to THz Wave Photonics is the perfect book for academic researchers, practicing engineers and students interested in learning more about the subject.
