SURA actively promotes the development of terahertz science and applications. We work closely with the THz team at JLab, where the world's strongest terahertz source is housed at the Free Electron Laser facility. SURA sponsors the annual Terahertz Applications Symposium each June in Washington, DC. Please contact us for more information about how to collaborate with other THz technologists in the academic, governmental, and commercial sectors.

What is Terahertz?
Terahertz is the term used to describe the portion of the electromagnetic spectrum between microwave and infrared (see EMS chart). Although terahertz waves have always existed, scientists have only recently begun harnessing the power of THz to produce images, transmit signals, and perform spectroscopic measurements. Terahertz is unique in its ability to transmit through nearly any material (like x-rays) without causing biological harm (like infrared). This will allow scanning for weapons at airports, detecting hidden explosives, pinpointing the location of skin cancer during surgery, and a host of other exciting applications.

Chart of the Electromagnetic Spectrum
The charts below are available for FREE download in pdf or jpg format. Feel free to use them in any presentations or for personal reference provided that credit to SURA is noted. Full-color, glossy 18"x24" posters are also available for purchase from SURA.
