Terahertz Physics

Book


Abstract


  • Terahertz physics covers one ofthe least explored but richest regions of the electromagnetic

    spectrum. Designed for independent learning, this is the first textbook to open up

    this exciting new area to students of science and engineering.

    Written in a clear and consistent style, the book focusses on an understanding of

    fundamental physical principles at terahertz frequencies and their applications. Part I

    outlines the foundations of terahertz science, starting with the mathematical representation

    of oscillations before exploring terahertz-frequency light, terahertz phenomena

    in matter and the terahertz interactions between light and matter. Part II covers components

    ofterahcrtz technology, from SOlU"ces ofterahertz-frequellcy radiation, through the

    manipulation of the radiation, to its detection. Part III deals with applications, including

    time-domain spectroscopy.

    Highlighting modern developments and concepts, the book is ideal for self-study.

    It features precise definitions, clear explanations, instructive illustrations, fully worked

    examples, numerous exercises and a comprehensive glossmy.
