Rensselaer to open new Terahertz Research Center

TROY, N.Y. -- Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute will mark the expansion of its terahertz research facilities with a gathering of pioneers and other experts in the field, for a discussion of the history and promise of this emerging technology.

The terahertz (THz) frequency range -- or "T-rays" -- presents the next frontier in imaging science and technology. Researchers at Rensselaer have used advanced THz technology to uncover small defects in the foam used for space shuttle insulation. Terahertz waves also offer enormous potential to find answers to problems as varied as asbestos or radiation contamination, or to search for landmines, plastic explosives, or weapons. There are also potential applications in medical imaging, agriculture, forensic science, and food safety.

President Shirley Ann Jackson, Dean of Science Joseph Flaherty, Physics Chair Gwo-Ching Wang, Professor Xi-Cheng Zhang, and honored guests will join the Rensselaer community in dedicating the new W. M. Keck Laboratory for Terahertz Science in the Center for Terahertz Research at Rensselaer. The Dec. 5 ceremonies will include a "Conversation on Terahertz" and a "Technical Symposium on Terahertz Research." The programs will be held in the George M. Low Center for Industrial Innovation, Room 4050, beginning at 10:45 a.m., and are open to the public

Zhang, along with two other distinguished pioneers in terahertz research Daniel Grischkowsky, Oklahoma State University; and Yuen-Ron Shen, the University of California at Berkeley and Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory will participate in the "Conversation on Terahertz Research," moderated by President Jackson beginning at 11 a.m. They will discuss the history and potential applications of terahertz research, and take questions from the audience.

The "Technical Symposium on Terahertz Research," from 1 to 4 p.m., will include an overview of terahertz science, its history and promise, a review
