Brief description Terahertz (THz) technology is in use in diverse applications from security screening to biomedical imaging. A critical hurdle to the widespread adoption of the technology is the poor understanding of the basic interaction between THz radiation and hydrated materials. The aim of this proposal is to develop new mathematical and computer models for exploring the interaction of THz radiation with different materials. These models will create a platform for the future development of THz technology and applications, and will lead to accelerated implementation for use in biology and protein analysis; pharmaceutical sciences, formulations and medicine; burn assessment and cancer detection.
