About this event

Significant progress has been made in exploring intrinsic mechanisms between microstructure of materials and their Terahertz (THz) properties. 1st THz and Materials workshop, sponsored by EPSRC Teranet seedcorn fund, has been hold on April 2017 at Thornton Science Park, University of Chester. The 2nd of this workshop will continue to cover broad applications of THz technology in materials science and engineering, inspire new ideas and solutions for new functional THz materials or improve current materials research methods, and provide opportunities for academic-industrial collaboration.
