Terahertz (THz) waves, also known as T-Waves, T-rays, or submilimetric waves are the name given to electromagnetic waves in the frequency band of about 0.1 to 10 THz. This frequency band is located right between the more well-known bands of microwaves and infrared radiation. It has remained unexploited until very recently due to the lack of practical devices for generation and detection. das-Nano is harnessing the power of THz waves to bring brand-new applications to solve problems in the most demanding industries.
