Scientists develop a tunable bio-imaging device using terahertz plasmonics

Non-invasive terahertz sensing could be a game changer for future diagnostics

Researchers at Tokyo Tech have developed an easy-to-use, tunable biosensor tailored for the terahertz (THz) range. Images of mouse organs obtained using their new device verify that the sensor is capable of distinguishing between different tissues. The achievement expands possibilities for terahertz applications in biological analysis and future diagnostics.
