Terahertz Biomedicine Laboratory was created on September, 2013 and based on Department of Photonics and Optical Information Technologies as a part of 5-100 project.
Terzhertz radiation (or submillimeter radiation) is not ionizing radiation and it is safety for human. Terahertz radiation was discovered in 1896.
Unless they’re at a temperature of absolute zero (−273.16°C), all objects, animate and inanimate, give off terahertz radiation (called T-rays), the heat from molecular vibrations. This “black-body” radiation is emitted at such low intensities − typically less than a millionth of a watt per square centimeter − that we are unaware of it. T-rays are part of the broad spectrum of electromagnetic radiation that includes radio waves, microwaves, infrared, visible light, ultraviolet, X-rays and gamma rays. T-rays lie between microwaves, whose wavelengths measure from centimeters to millimeters, and light, with wavelengths measured in nanometers, or billionths of a meter. The gap between the so-called terahertz gap.
The aim of the laboratory’s creation is research and engineering of new terahertz devices and systems for social improtant deceases therapy and diagnostics by terahertz waves.
