Terahertz frequency radiation occupies a distinctive position in the electromagnetic spectrum. Sitting between the radio and microwave regions at lower frequencies, and the infrared and visible regions at higher frequencies, it lies at the interface between electronics and optics leading to significant challenges in accessing and exploiting this part of the spectrum. Professor Davies has made seminal contributions to the development of terahertz technology over the last two decades. His research leadership is remarkable not only for its outstanding and influential achievements, but also for the breadth of collaborative activity, which has underpinned the spectacular growth of this field internationally.
