Welcome to Helios

The Hyperspectral Engine Lab for Integrated Optical Systems (HELIOS) Laboratory is solely focused on exploring the uncharted THz spectrum by acquiring equipment and engaging several companies and government agencies in collaborative projects. The ongoing projects at HELIOS focus on THz imaging, spectroscopy, material characterization, next generation THz integrated circuits for high data rate proximity communications, active monitoring, quality control of electronic chips, pharmaceutical product quality control at the production line, and biomedical applications such as tissue imaging, detection and identification. The primary goal of the HELIOS laboratory is to facilitate the development of faster, smaller, higher power and cheaper terahertz devices.
