Brief description Terahertz (THz) radiation is a disruptive technology promising revolutionary applications in fields as far ranging as biomedicine to counter-terrorism. But most of these applications have yet to see practical implementation, due to a lack of practical and robust THz radiation sources. This project will leverage on our expertise in non-linear optics to develop new methods of generating THz radiation in both continuous-wave and picosecond-pulse, quasi-continuous-wave regimes, which will complement and enhance current technologies. The outcomes will be THz sources generating frequency range, output power and temporal characteristics required for existing and emergent applications for THz radiation in scientific, commercial and defence sectors.
