New video explores last frontier of the spectrum

A video has been produced to explain the relatively unexplored terahertz region of the electromagnetic spectrum to secondary school children.


The video has been produced by UCL, the University of Cambridge and the University of Leeds, who are partners on the EPSRC funded Coherent Teeagertz Systems (COTS) research programme. The video is timed to be circulated to schools during the International Year of Light and teaching material is being developed to help explain the importance of light and light based technologies.

If your school are interested in offering a class on THz technology with support from the university partners, please contact COTS Outreach Manager, Tim Bodley-Scott..
