NIT Warangal, in technical partnership with M/S TeraHertz technology, will launch India's first centre of excellence in terahertz science and technology. M/S TeraHertz Technology, Hyderabad is a collaborator of M/S TeraView, Cambridge, UK.

The institute held the first incubation workshop on Trends and Challenges in Terahertz Science and Technology on 14th Dec 2009 to create awareness on the potential opportunities and challenges in this hitherto unexposed area of electromagnetic spectrum.

The workshop was inaugurated by Professor Y.V. Rao, director, NIT, Warangal who gave opening remarks on the future of Centre for Terahertz Science and Technology (CTST) at NIT, Warangal.

In his address Brigadier P. Ganesham, VSM (Retd) briefed on defence applications of terahertz signals. He said explosive detection is the biggest problem being faced by the modern world and there is no potential technology available to detect explosives like landmines and human mines. He also emphasised the point that terahertz technology would be the most usable technology.

Professor Dr. Ramesh Chouhan, renowned oncologist and scientist, of TeraHertz Technology spoke to the audience about the medical applications and imaging aspects.

Ian Grundy, senior VP of TeraView, UK gave an impactful presentation on all aspects of TeraView's research and development activities. All the audience and the speakers expressed their hope that the centre will grow from strength to strength and make remarkable progress in the development of terahertz science and products.

NIT Warangal is entering into an MOU with M/S TeraHertz Technology, Hyderabad. The centre would be jointly funded by both the organisations and will undertake the development of applications using the technology in collaboration with TeraView, UK. The arising IPRs and other benefits would be shared.

With this initiative, it is envisaged that NIT Warangal would be the first educational institution to create a centre of excellence for terahertz technology in India and will soon emerge as an important global player in exploitation of terahertz science.
