Terahertz Biophotonics Laboratory

The research projects in our group are focused on the invention of new terahertz emission, detection and imaging technologies and their applications in biophotonics, medical imaging, non-destructive testing, material characterization and stand-off detection of chemicals. Our work spans electro-optic theory development, modeling, instrumentation and imaging signal processing techniques. These projects are sponsored by the National Institute of Health, the National Science Foundation, Coulter Foundation and the Boeing Company.

The lab is directed by Dr. Hassan Arbab, and is located in the Department of Biomedical Engineering at the State University of New York (SUNY), Stony Brook. Before moving to Stony Brook, our group was part of the Applied Physics Laboratory at the University of Washington (APL-UW).
