Abstract Title: Undergraduate Terahertz (THz) Exercises for Advanced Laboratory at Morehouse College
Abstract: The undergraduate terahertz (THz) imaging and research laboratory exercises are designed to expose undergraduate students to THz technology. Instructional laboratory experiments using THz optics, detectors, and sources will be useful for STEM majors to learn imaging and spectroscopy principles associated with concealed weapons and explosive objects. We are designing and prototyping an instructional lab manual for undergraduates that will capture a wide range of THz experiments and modeling simulations with increasing complexity. We will present selected experiments, simulations, and ongoing developments.
