Jaime Gomez Rivas: “Get ready for the terahertz revolution”

September 13, 2021

In the latest episode of our podcast Science is here, Jaime Gomez Rivas talks about the future of terahertz technology at TU/e.

Terahertz technology looks set to play a significant role in many future applications such as sensing, communication, and healthcare. But what is terahertz technology? And how are our researchers advancing this technology? Physicist and professor in Surface Photonics Jaime Gomez Rivas answers these questions and more in discussion with host Barry Fitzgerald in the latest podcast episode of Science is here.

Terahertz technologies, which operate in the frequency range from 100 GHz to 10 THz, can be found at the interface of high-frequency electronics and low-frequency photonics. Until now, these technologies have been relatively unexplored. “Terahertz technologies offer plenty of possibilities, but to date there have been a lack of efficient sources of terahertz radiation and we still don’t have compact THz systems,” says Jaime Gomez Rivas, professor in the department of Applied Physics at TU/e.

To help escalate advancements in terahertz technologies, Gomez Rivas and his TU/e colleagues have established the Centre for Terahertz Science & Technology Eindhoven (CTSTe), which is dedicated towards advancing terahertz technologies in addition to developing teaching laboratories and courses focused on THz science.

In the latest episode of the English-language podcast Science is here, terahertz technology is very much in the spotlight as Jaime Gomez Rivas discusses the state-of-art in the field, and the importance of the new center at TU/e, which was formally launched in July 2021.
