The first demonstrations of terahertz imaging in biomedicine were made several years ago, but few data are available on the optical properties of human tissue at terahertz frequencies. A catalogue of these properties has been established to estimate variability and determine the practicality of proposed medical applications in terms of penetration depth,(More)
In this paper we report on the design, fabrication and testing of a silicon based, microfluidic device, for transmission THz-TDS. Testing of the device and the associated data extraction algorithms is accomplished by the analysis of primary alcohol/water mixtures, where quantities of 2 µmol can be distinguished between samples. The analysis of(More)
The idea of this event, in the 350th Anniversary Year of the Royal Society, arose from discussions within the Durham Biophysical Sciences Institute in late 2008. The objective of the meeting as a whole was to consider both the positive and negative aspects of climate change and potential global shortages of both energy and natural resources; but with a(More)
Terahertz (THz) frequency radiation, 0.1 THz to 20 THz, is being investigated for biomedical imaging applications following the introduction of pulsed THz sources that produce picosecond pulses and function at room temperature. Owing to the broadband nature of the radiation, spectral and temporal information is available from radiation that has interacted(More)
In this paper we report on a novel fabrication approach for the manufacture of terahertz waveguides with embedded metal rods. It is anticipated that this type of structure could be used for sub-wavelength imaging or as a method to effectively couple radiation into biological samples.
In this paper we report on the fabrication and testing of sub-wavelength apertures surrounded by annular plasmonic structures, for use in near-field imaging with a QCL source. Both double corrugated structures and planarised designs have been tested, with the latter producing a spatially uniform far-field emission profile. Greatly increased transmission has(More)
