The symposium, held in the beautiful UK Lake District and hosted by Prof. Wilson Sibbett, CBE, FRS, FRSE, brought together the leading terahertz researchers from around the United Kingdom. The week-long meeting featured lectures with topics ranging from new terahertz emitters and detectors to the non-destructive characterization of water content in vegetation. Most importantly, the symposium encouraged conversations between participants, leading to free-flowing ideas and hopefully many potentially-productive collaborations.
One such event held during the meeting involved a hike to the top of Alcock Tarn in Grasmere. The views were spectacular and necessitated lots of picture taking!
