Impressive indeed. Such cameras on ordinary mobile phones would be something straight off a James Bond movie :-)

"which works as well as x-rays" That seems like quite a stretch. THz imaging might replace some small subset of x-ray use, but certainly not the mainstream use in medical diagnostics.

One step closer to Dr. McCoy's tricorder.

So, where is the lower frequency limit for THz electronics? If you define THz by "operation frequency above 0.5 THz", then you might include this work: doi: 10.1109/JSSC.2009.2021911 from ISSCC 2010 from a Prof. Pfeiffer in Wuppertal, Germany.

Interesting. That will be a lot of challenges in the bench. That is awesome - a great push to the future. Yet, we need to start thinking of asynchronous system if we need this party to stay long. High speed comes more problems to manage.

Dear Doctor: EYZtek is a military contractor for more than 20 yeras, currently we have polymer and Raman explosive detectors for security, can we license your THz CMOS? Pls reply. Thanks, Alan Zhang, PhD

Where can we see a demo of the THz CMOS?
