Dr. Wu earned his B.S. and M.S. degrees from the University of Science and Technology of China (USTC) in 1997 and 2000, and his Ph.D. degree from the University of Rochester in 2007. He joined the School of Physical Sciences at USTC as a faculty member in 2022. Dr. Wu’s research interests are centered on terahertz wave technology and its applications, including terahertz imaging, spectroscopy, and communication systems. Dr. Wu led the team to develop the first terahertz single-pixel imaging system and real-time array imaging system in China. Furthermore, he established evaluation criteria for terahertz imaging technologies and played a pivotal role in formulating the nation’s first industry standards for terahertz technology. He has obtained more than 20 invention patents, won the provincial and ministerial level science and technology first prize twice.

1) Terahertz imaging
2) Terahertz Spectroscopy
3) Terahertz Communication

In this project, students will explore the basics of terahertz spectroscopy and gain hands-on experience with a terahertz spectrometer to examine the spectral response of diverse substances within the terahertz frequency range, including biological tumor tissues, innovative materials, plasmas, and beyond.

Students with strong motivation and interests in Terahertz Wave, Millimeter Wave, Microwave Photonics, and Optical Spectroscopies.
