The region of the electromagnetic spectrum from 0.1 to 20 terahertz (THz, 3–600 cm−1, 3 mm–15 μm wavelength) is a frontier area for research in Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Materials science, Biosafety and Medicine. THz sources showing high stability, high-intensity and covering a broad spectral range have been scarce, but this gap has been filled by a wide range of new technologies ranging from Quantum-Cascade-Lasers (QCL), to THz emission from high-intensity sub-ps lasers, from THz production from new synchrotrons and Free-Electron-Lasers. Terahertz radiation is now available in both cw and pulsed form, down to single-cycles or less, with time duration down to hundreds of fs, and a peak powers up to 1 GW. New sources have led to new applications in many scientific areas, as researchers are aware of the opportunities for research progress in their fields using THz radiation. In this book, different scientific applications in THz science will be discussed, ranging from new sources non linear optics, pump-probe spectroscopy, imaging in biomedicine, THz spectroscopy of gases and liquid, THz detectors and much more.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Condensed Matter is an international peer-reviewed open access quarterly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1400 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
