This book is an authoritative synthesis of research on emerging applications in terahertz. It contains extensive and thorough coverage of solid-state physics and devices, including sources, detectors, advanced materials, and light–matter interactions with theoretical, methodological, and illustrated examples. The title covers a very vast audience from basic science to engineering and technology experts and learners. This can eventually work as a textbook for engineering students or science masters programs and for researchers.
