The THz Structural Dynamics group of the Department of Physical Chemistry at the Fritz Haber Institute has made a significant advancement in light research, as detailed in their recent publication in the journal Optica, titled „Quartz as an Accurate High-Field Low-Cost THz Helicity Detector.” Their work introduces a fast, cost-efficient, and precise technique for analyzing complex waveforms of Terahertz (THz) light, a part of the far-infrared spectrum that is invisible to the naked eye and most detectors. Strong THz laser pulses are further crucial for exploring and manipulating fundamental properties of materials at ultrafast speeds. more
