Scientists of the International Institute «Photonics and Optical Information Technology» of ITMO University for the first time in the world measured nonlinearities in the terahertz frequency range.

Researchers from Laboratory of Femtosecond Optics and Femtotechnologies of ITMO University have, for the first time in history, managed to directly measure the nonlinear refractive index of matter in the terahertz range. The results of their experiments were compared with previously existing theoretical predictions in order to confirm the presence of nonlinear effects. The obtained data can be used to control light, as well as in fundamental and biomedical research. The results have been published in Optics Express.

Physicists of the International Institute «Photonics and Optical Informatics» Conduct Study of Terahertz Radiation in Liquids

A research team from ITMO University and the University of Rochester (the USA) have conducted a study on the formation of terahertz radiation in liquids. Previously, the generation of such radiation in a liquid medium was considered impossible due to high absorption. However, in their new research, the scientists described this phenomenon’s physical nature and demonstrated that liquid radiation sources can be equally effective to traditional ones. The results have been published in Applied Physics Letters Nov. 1, 2018. The Editors felt that this article was one of the journal's best, and have chosen to promote it as a Featured Article.
