Terahertz applications include chemical analysis, security scanning, medical imaging and telecommunications. The professors have led in the development of quantum cascade lasers and the use of terahertz spectroscopy to characterize materials.

The Faraday Medal is awarded annually by the Institution of Engineering and Technology for outstanding contributions in experimental physics to a physicist of international reputation in any sector. The medal is accompanied by a prize of £ 1000.

Glossary
terahertz
Terahertz (THz) refers to a unit of frequency in the electromagnetic spectrum, denoting waves with frequencies between 0.1 and 10 terahertz. One terahertz is equivalent to one trillion hertz, or cycles per second. The terahertz frequency range falls between the microwave and infrared regions of the electromagnetic spectrum. Key points about terahertz include: Frequency range: The terahertz range spans from approximately 0.1 terahertz (100 gigahertz) to 10 terahertz. This corresponds to...
