Chemists Create “Comb” that Detects Terahertz Waves with Extreme Precision

By photosearth / May 25, 2015

News Writer:  Kimm Fesenmaier Caltech chemists have developed a precise ruler of terahertz light that will aid in the study of organic molecules in space, and the soft interactions between molecules in water. Due to its resemblance to a hair comb, the ruler is called a terahertz frequency comb, Credit: Lance Hayashida/Caltech and NASA/ESA/ and […]

News Writer:  Jessica Stoller-Conrad Artistic representation of an OCO-2 orbit track, covering vegetated areas and measuring Solar Induced Fluorescence (SIF). OCO-2 will enable measurements within a narrow swath with sufficient accuracy for 5km x 5km spatial scales—an unprecedented resolution for SIF measurements from space. The measurement technique itself is also robust against occurrences of atmospheric […]
