Terahertz Applications Group

Department of Chemical Engineering and Biotechnology

Studying at Cambridge

 

Group Overview

Research into terahertz spectroscopy and imaging evolved from the activities in the Semiconductor Physics Group at the Cavendish Laboratory in Cambridge. As result of a restructuring of the group Professor Gladden took over some of the research activities in this area in 2004 and the group became part of the Department of Chemical Engineering and Biotechnology, though still based at the Cavendish Laboratory. Since 2010 the group is led by Dr Axel Zeitler. We are expecting to move into the new building of the Department of Chemical Engineering and Biotechnology in 2016.

The terahertz applications group and the Magnetic Resonance Research Centre (MRRC) have a very close working relationship and there are a number of areas of mutual research interest in which we are trying to exploit the complementary benefits of both magnetic resonance and terahertz techniques. We also continue to work very closely with the Semiconductor Physics Group with regards to device fabrication and quantum cascade laser applications whilst maintaining an independent research programme in terahertz spectroscopy. In addition, we collaborate with a wide range of groups, both academic and industrial.
