Abstract

The vast majority of molecules detected in space has been identified by rotational and ro-vibrational spectra in the millimeter- and sub-millimeter wavelength region. Laboratory studies at sub-millimeter wavelengths or terahertz frequencies require sophisticated spectroscopic techniques, which have been developed over the last few decades by worldwide leading spectroscopy groups. In this section spectroscopic tools for high resolution Terahertz spectroscopy of gas phase molecules are presented and illustrated by examples from the Cologne laboratories.
