terahertz radiation

n.
Electromagnetic radiation with waves of frequencies ranging from 0.3 × 1012 to 3 × 1012 hertz and of wavelengths ranging from 0.1 to 1 millimeter of potential use in detection, imaging, and communications technologies. Also called submillimeter radiation.

Terahertz radiation (typically 0.3-3thz) is one of the less-accessible parts of the electromagnetic spectrum, as many technologies and methodologies available in optics and microwaves, which limit the thz band at the two sides of the spectrum, cannot be directly applied there.
She said that this was the only method the group are aware of for imaging terahertz radiation in this way.
IIR, SBR, and NR have obvious absorption peaks in 1.0 ~ 1.4THz, which are the nonlinear absorption of rubber to terahertz radiation, similar to that of two-dimensional materials to optical bands and microwaves [23].
For the first time ever, terahertz radiation will make it possible to inspect multi-layer coating systems without damaging them--even when they are on plastic substrates.

The core technology behind this method is terahertz radiation, which has multiple advantages over other surface-penetrating waves like X-Ray and sound waves.
The system uses terahertz radiation, the band of electromagnetic radiation between microwaves and infrared light, which has several advantages over other types of waves that can penetrate surfaces, such as X-rays or sound waves.
