Tiny Terahertz Laser Could be Used for Industrial Imaging

A new terahertz design that can be etched on microchips boosts the power output of chip-mounted terahertz lasers by 80 percent. The novel design shows promise for future industrial imaging and chemical detection applications. The standard method for producing power-efficient sources of terahertz rays involves a bulky, power-hungry tabletop device.
