International Symposium on Frontiers in THz Technology (FTT 2012)

Late in the last century, the rapid development of terahertz technology began, and in this century, a variety of applications including industrial applications have come to be expected. Many new techniques have been presented, and various applications have been proposed. The full-scale industrial application of terahertz technology has just begun in worldwide. In Japan, Terahertz Technology Forum and Japan Society for the Promotion of Science have been promoting the industrial applications of terahertz technology. At this symposium we would like to highlight what can and cannot be accomplished using the technology once it has matured, and also its particular advantageous points as compared with other techniques. We hope to further connect this discussion to future development and realistic industrial applications. Therefore, the scope of this symposium is to discuss the current state of affairs across a broad range—from basic technologies to industrial applications—and to clarify the prospects for the future.
