Advances in Terahertz Spectroscopy and Imaging (#413)

Built on the successes of the past terahertz symposia, the organizers are pleased to offer a symposium on "Advances in Terahertz Spectroscopy and Imaging" at the Pacifichem 2015 in Hawaii. Contributions are solicited addressing subjects from all walks of terahertz applications. As an emerging area of science and technology, terahertz spectrometry, reflectometry and imaging has a potential for addressing some of the critical problems of the 21st century. As indicated by an increased number of attendance and papers in the past symposia, the proposed symposium will fulfill a gap in the technical programming by attracting terahertz and related community from all over the world. While there are other spectroscopy techniques, terahertz technology provides unique information that is not available from the predecessors. Therefore, this symposium will report on the advances of terahertz applications in crucial matters such as; biomedical research, early detection of skin cancer, transdermal drug delivery, biopharmaceuticals, materials for energy, conservation and forensic science, security & screening, geology and minerals, and other areas. This symposium presents an opportunity for the exchange of knowledge in a global forum, including results and discussions of current and break through terahertz techniques and their applications. Papers, including spectroscopic techniques on above mentioned areas and other terahertz applications in solving important problems are welcome.
