    Title : Passion in THz Wave Science and Technology

  • Abstract

    When my children asked me why I dedicated more than 25 years on THz wave related research and development, I replied that my choices were limited during the early 80s. However, when I think back and review the recent development of broadband THz wave science and technology, I am delighted and very grateful for having had the opportunity, together with many colleagues, students, scientists, engineers, and friends, to work in this exciting field. This talk will review broadband THz wave science and technology, and highlight current cutting-edge science and technology, including extreme THz science.
