harnessing terahertz technology  
   
   
 
Pharmaceutical
The sensitivity and specificity of terahertz to both intramolecular and intermolecular vibrations is important for the pharmaceutical industry for identifying the crystalline state of drugs. The ability of terahertz to probe the hydrogen bonding between molecules, which form the building blocks of many complex systems, in addition to probing large amplitude molecular vibrations and twisting and torsional modes, makes terahertz an exciting and extremely important region of the electromagnetic spectrum for pharmaceutical applications. The terahertz spectral signatures of DNA, genes, polymorphic drugs and other molecular compounds have been investigated, producing exciting results.
