9781466570429: Terahertz Astronomy

This book reflects the power of today’s radio technology, which allows for probing of the emission and absorption of light by atoms and molecules in the terahertz range. It covers the principles and practical techniques related to THz observations of interstellar atoms, molecules, and dust, and shows how they elucidate conditions within the interstellar medium that permeates our Galaxy and provide insights into the origins of stars, planets, galaxies, and the Universe itself.

Book Description Taylor Francis Inc, United States, 2015. Hardback. Book Condition: New. 254 x 178 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. A Powerful Window into Cosmic Evolution Terahertz (THz) observations of interstellar atoms, molecules, and dust serve as powerful probes of the conditions within the interstellar medium that permeates our galaxy, providing insights into the origins of stars, planets, galaxies, and the Universe. Taking a cross-disciplinary approach to the subject, Terahertz Astronomy explores THz astrophysics and the technologies that make this rapidly evolving field possible. The first four chapters of the book discuss the origin and interpretation of THz light in astrophysical sources. The remaining five chapters present an overview of the technologies used to collect and detect THz light. Every chapter contains worked-out examples and exercises. The author explains each topic as intuitively as possible and includes the equations needed for real-life astrophysical applications. In just a few years, the number of active THz researchers has substantially grown due to increased interest in terrestrial remote sensing at THz frequencies. This book provides researchers with both the background science and technology to interpret THz observations and design, build, and deploy THz astronomical instrumentation.
