Organisation profile

Introduction / mission

Terahertz (THz) radiation is electromagnetic radiation in the frequency range spanning from 100 GHz to 10 THz. This range, comprised between high-frequency electronics and low-frequency photonics, has remained relatively unexplored for decades due to the lack of efficient sources and compact THz systems. The CTSTe performs research in this exciting field, unveiling new applications and developing THz technology.  

Organisational profile

The Center for Terahertz Science and Technology Eindhoven (CTSTe) is an interdisciplinary research center at TU/e developing THz technology and applying THz radiation in novel applications and for fundamental research. The center has initiated its activities in 2021 at the departments of Electrical Engineering and Applied Physics, but has the ambition to grow transversally incorporating research activities relevant for different fields. CTSTe has initially identified 6 focus areas where THz radiation can make impact. These focus areas are:


  1. THz applications for Agri-food
  2. THz biomedical diagnosis 
  3. Industrial processes monitoring with THz radiation
  4. Safety and security with THz waves
  5. THz diagnosis and spectroscopy for energy research
  6. Other disruptive domains of THz radiation


Wireless communications is a focus area of the Center for Wireless Technology Eindhoven with whom we closely cooperate.

UN Sustainable Development Goals

In 2015, UN member states agreed to 17 global Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure prosperity for all. Our work contributes towards the following SDG(s):

  • SDG 7 - Affordable and Clean Energy
  • SDG 9 - Industry, Innovation, and Infrastructure
