Terahertz (THz) spectroscopy systems – allowing us to gain new insights about many-body quantum kinetics

Terahertz spectroscopy detects and controls properties of matter with electromagnetic fields that are in the frequency range between a few hundred gigahertz and several terahertz (abbreviated as THz). Terahertz (THz) represents the portion of the electromagnetic radiation between the microwave and the infrared region. Terahertz (THz) spectroscopy systems are widely employed to retrieve the chemical and material composition of a sample. This is single-handedly the most important driving mo...

‘Deep Learning ‘

Deep learning is a subset of machine learning where artificial neural networks, algorithms inspired by the human brain, learn from large amounts of data. Deep learning allows machines to solve complex problems even when using a data set that is very diverse, unstructured and inter-connected. Deep Learning uses a Neural Network to imitate animal intelligence. There are three types of layers of neurons in a neural network: the Input Layer, the Hidden Layer(s), and the Output Layer. Neur...
