Coherent terahertz systems (COTS) - opening up the terahertz spectrum for widespread application

The THz frequency region is the final unexploited part of the electromagnetic spectrum. The bandwidth available is about 30 times greater than the entire allocated radio spectrum. The main reason for its underuse is the complexity, bulk, high power consumption and lack of coherence of extant THz technologies. This project will bring together pioneering teams from UCL, the universities of Cambridge and Leeds, and the London Centre for Nanotechnology to open up the THz spectrum for widespread scientific and commercial use through photonics-enabled coherent techniques. The project aims to maintain UK pre-eminence in the field and exploit it to establish leadership in wireless communications.
