scientific aims
last update: 24.10.07 gi

  • The scientific aims of the TerZ are application of THz-radiation in materials science, development of THz sources, detectors, components and techniques, as well as fundamental research in the area of spintronics and non-linear optical and opto-electronic phenomena.
  • Furthermore the physical mechanisms of interaction of THz-radiation with biological tissues including intense excitation will be investigated in view of coming medical, security, communication applications.
  • One of the goal to be achieved by the Center is a chemical and biological materials identification applying THz radiation.


Organization:

  • The administrative organization of the Center will improve the coordination of the research work of various local groups and scientists from outside interested in the experimental facilities of the Center.
  • Local members: within Regensburg university the labs of C. Back, S.D. Ganichev, H. Lengfellner, V. Mirsky, C. Schüller, W. Wegscheider, D. Weiss, O.S. Wolfbeis

Education:

  • The educational goals will be achieved by scientific seminars, lectures (lecture courses Infrared/Terahertz Physics, Laser Physics, Semiconductor Physics), and by tutoring of Bachelor, Master, Diploma and doctoral theses.
  • Besides local students, exchange students from various international Universities are educated in THz science at TerZ. These students make use of various exchange Programmes like SOCRATES (Trinity College), DAAD, and AvH-Foundation.
  • Furthermore scientist from various international institutions get access to the THz-laboratories and exchange knowledge with our students.
