Bio Research in Terahertz

The unique characteristics of THz spectrum and lack of research in this relatively unexplored territory motivate this laboratory to conduct biological research in this spectrum. Currently, in this lab researchers are working on detecting cancer cell from healthy human cell applying THz radiation. The idea is to observe chemical and electrical property changes in malignant and regular cells after exposure to radiation. This research requires THz measurement provisions. With the newly acquired Terahertz Vector Network Analyzer and other state of the art measurement facility, this lab can perform such measurement.
