The terahertz (THz) region of the electromagnetic spectrum, spans the frequency range between the mid infra-red and the millimetre/microwave (300 GHz _ 30 THz). This region of the spectrum has yet to be properly exploited owing to the severely limited number of sources and detectors available. There has therefore been considerable interest in the production of radiation sources which emit in the THz region of the electromagnetic spectrum. Over the last ten years or so, terahertz science and technology has advanced considerably with both optical-bench-based systems and solid state THz lasers (quantum cascade lasers) now routinely available.
