Welcome to the Terahertz Circuits and Systems Research Laboratory at the University of Notre Dame. We are a part of the Department of Electrical Engineering and the Advanced Diagnostics and Therapeutics Initiative in the College of Engineering and in the College of Science. This laboratory studies the electromagnetic waves in the frequency range of 0.1 to 10 THz (THz region). We seek to develop THz circuits and systems based on novel devices and materials, and apply the developed THz techniques to instruments, biological/chemical/medical analysis, astronomy, security and physics.
