A CONDUCTOR FOR TERAHERTZ SIGNALS
Alessandro Macor and Emile de Rijk of SWISSto12 have developed components that make the transmission of terahertz signals possible. The shortwave rays penetrate almost every material: they scan human beings to the skin in bodyscanners, they promote tumors in medical diagnostics and errors in chemical material analysis. The waves have so far been little used, because their transmission was difficult. With the heads of SWISSto12 this is now.
