Terahertz Spectroscopy: Principles and Applications (Optical Science and Engineering)by Dexheimer L. Dexheimer
Synopses & Reviews
The development of new sources and methods in the terahertz spectral range has generated intense interest in terahertz spectroscopy and its application in an array of fields. Presenting state-of-the-art terahertz spectroscopic techniques, Terahertz Spectroscopy: Principles and Applications focuses on time-domain methods based on femtosecond laser sources and important recent applications in physics, materials science, chemistry, and biomedicine.
The first section of the book examines instrumentation and methods for terahertz spectroscopy. It provides a comprehensive treatment of time-domain terahertz spectroscopic measurements, including methods for the generation and detection of terahertz radiation, methods for determining optical constants from time-domain measurements, and the use of femtosecond time-resolved techniques. The last two sections explore a variety of applications of terahertz spectroscopy in physics, materials science, chemistry, and biomedicine.
With chapters contributed by leading experts in academia, industry, and research, this volume thoroughly discusses methods and applications, setting it apart from other recent books in this emerging terahertz field.
Book News Annotation:
Terahertz frequencies (0.1 to 30 THz) span the range of low-energy excitations in electronic materials, low-frequency vibrational modes of condensed phase media, and vibrational and rotational transitions in molecules. In this volume, Dexheimer (physics, Washington State U.) presents eight chapters on terahertz spectroscopics techniques, focusing in particular on time-domain methods based on femtosecond laser sources. The volume also discusses applications to investigating carrier dynamics in semiconductors, superconductors, and strongly correlated electron materials; conductivity processes in novel electronic materials; optical response of semiconductor nanostructures; and biomolecules.
