Terahertz Spectroscopy

Terahertz spectroscopy is a very exciting technique for the physico-chemical characterisation of organic molecular crystals. By probing the hydrogen bonding networks and the phonon modes in molecular crystals the technique has a very high sensitivity to the supramolecular structure in solids.

Terahertz Imaging

Terahertz radiation is unique in that it can penetrate into and through a number of materials, such as polymers, ceramics, and amorphous pharmaceutical excipients. Image or chemical data can be extracted from the reflected or transmitted radiation.
