Intense THz pulses cause H2AX phosphorylation and activate DNA damage response in human skin tissue
Recent emergence and growing use of terahertz (THz) radiation for medical imaging and public security screening raise questions on reasonable levels of exposure and health consequences of this formExpand

Generation of Intense Terahertz Radiation via Optical Methods
The development of new sources in the terahertz (THz) spectral region has attracted much attention over the past 20 years. In particular, the last three years have seen a surge of new laser-basedExpand

Intense THz pulses down-regulate genes associated with skin cancer and psoriasis: a new therapeutic avenue?
Terahertz (THz) radiation lies between the infrared and microwave regions of the electromagnetic spectrum and is non-ionizing. We show that exposure of artificial human skin tissue to intense,Expand

Intense picosecond THz pulses alter gene expression in human skin tissue in vivo
Pulsed terahertz (THz) imaging has been suggested as a novel high resolution, noninvasive medical diagnostic tool. However, little is known about the influence of pulsed THz radiation on humanExpand

Nonlinear ultrafast modulation of the optical absorption of intense few-cycle terahertz pulses in n -doped semiconductors
We use an open-aperture $Z$ scan technique to show how intense few-cycle terahertz pulses can experience a nonlinear bleaching of absorption in an $n$-doped semiconductor due toExpand

Understanding the Origin of Phosphorescence in Bismoles: A Synthetic and Computational Study.
A series of bismuth heterocycles, termed bismoles, were synthesized via the efficient metallacycle transfer (Bi/Zr exchange) involving readily accessible zirconacycles. The luminescence properties ofExpand

Terahertz Polarization Properties of Free-Standing Millimeter-Scale Carbon Nanotube Array Sheets Cut With Femtosecond Laser Pulses
Vertically-aligned millimeter-scale multiwall carbon nanotube arrays (CNTAs) grown by catalytic chemical vapour deposition were cut by femtosecond laser pulses into thin free-standing sheets ofExpand

Topology-Based Prediction of Pathway Dysregulation Induced by Intense Terahertz Pulses in Human Skin Tissue Models
The strong interaction between terahertz (THz) radiation and biological systems has motivated the development of several biomedical technologies, including imaging and spectroscopy applications withExpand

Biological effects of intense THz pulses on human skin tissue models
We investigate the biological effects of intense THz pulses by measuring global differential gene expression profiles of THz-exposed human skin tissue models. The onset of significant differences inExpand

Super-coulombic energy transfer: Engineering dipole-dipole interactions with metamaterials
We demonstrate experimentally that hyperbolic metamaterials fundamentally alter dipole-dipole interactions conventionally limited to the near-field. The effect is captured in long-range energyExpand
