Japanese terahertz technology Prize to Kaiserslautern scientists … – PresseBox (Pressemitteilung)

         Prof. Dr. René Beigang the Department of Physics of the University of Kaiserslautern was honored last week in Hamamatsu in Japan within the framework of the international conference “International Symposium on Frontiers in Terahertz Technologies FTT 2015″ with the Japanese terahertz technology Prize 2015th This prize is awarded internationally outstanding personalities, who have worked in a special way for the promotion of terahertz technology in science and industrial applications. Is awarded this significant recognition from the Japanese Terahertz Technology Forum, which was founded in 2003 and is committed to the dissemination and use of terahertz technology. At intervals of three years, selected by an international jury with members from USA, Japan, Korea and Germany the prize winners. The international award is only internationally recognized top scientists with great visibility and outstanding reputation to part.

The terahertz technology is still a very young and maturing end employment field of modern high-frequency metrology. Terahertz waves develop in the electromagnetic spectrum between microwaves and a frequency range infrared. The low-energy radiation, similar to penetrate such as microwaves, paper, wood, light clothing, plastics and ceramics easily. In addition, generate terahertz waves, depending on what substances they take, characteristic spectra, which can be analyzed quickly using intelligent software. Thus substances can for example be non-invasively identifying which are covered by textiles, plastic or cardboard packaging without removing it first. Another important advantage: terahertz waves are non-ionizing and harmless to humans – in contrast to X-rays. In particular, the latter feature makes the waves for use in many applications of interest. But that it may happen, some research and development work is still required, which are currently being pursued in Kaiserslautern. Here, the Kaiserslautern team consumed mainly by the decades-long-driven research of the research group of Professor Beigang, who has contributed greatly to the current state of terahertz technology, for which he was now consistently honored with the Japanese terahertz technology Prize 2015th

Prof. Dr. René Beigang researching for almost 20 years at the University of Kaiserslautern in the field of generation and use of terahertz waves, both the physical principles relating to and in the area of ​​industrial applications. He is instrumental in setting up the department “Material characterization and testing MC” of Fraunhofer IPM in Kaiserslautern with the goal of leading the terahertz technology for final industrial maturity.
