Schematic diagram and operation concept for plasmonic terahertz devices (credit: C.W. Berry et al./University of Michigan)An electrical engineering research team at the University of Michigan has developed a laser-powered terahertz source and detector system that transmits with 50 times more power and receives with 30 times more sensitivity than existing technologies.This offers 1,500 times more powerful systems for imaging and sensing applications.Low-energy terahertz radiation could...
