Terahertz Science & Technology

IEEE Terahertz Science & Technology


IEEE Transactions on Terahertz Science and Technology focuses on original research on terahertz theory, techniques, and applications as they relate to basic science, components, devices, circuits, and systems involving all aspects of terahertz waves.

The IEEE Transactions on Terahertz Science and Technology is specifically aimed at the frequency range between 300 GHz and 10 THz: “Expanding the use of the Electromagnetic Spectrum”. The Transactions covers a wide range of activities and developments in terahertz science and applications, while at the same time helping to bridge the technology gap between the RF and photonics communities. The journal targets high-impact papers with broad appeal to the rapidly expanding terahertz community. The goal is to provide a reference source for the entire THz community and include articles on applications and basic science using the THz spectrum. Although the journal is sponsored by the Microwave Theory and Techniques Society, the scope of the Transactions extends to fields and activities that are outside of the traditional RF and microwave communities. In keeping with the varying scope of the THz field, the topical editors of the Transactions continually re-evaluate their emphasis and update their committee members to intelligently respond to trends and to the suggestions of the Transactions contributors and readers. The Transactions on Terahertz Science and Technology has the goal of reaching out beyond the borders of the traditional electrical engineering community and into cross-disciplinary fields that make use of the unique technology that we represent and publish. 

The IEEE Transactions on Terahertz Science and Technology is the preeminent publication concerning terahertz science and technology, with an acceptance rate of 35% and published bimonthly. The Transactions is a hybrid journal and offers open access publishing options. The Transactions accepts both long, fully developed regular papers, in addition to shorter, more timely manuscripts; these papers will appear in our "THz Letters" section. Tutorial and review papers are also published, as well as occasional special issues, which present collections of papers that examine particular areas with a wider scope and more in-depth. Please, note that the IEEE Transactions on Terahertz Science and Technology does not accept incremental submissions and theory, measurements, and simulations should be supported by careful comparisons.

Electronic access is available to digital subscribers through IEEE Xplore.

Before submitting manuscripts, authors should check Information for Authors and follow the instructions to prepare submissions.


The THz Best Paper Prize recognizes the author(s) of the paper, published in IEEE Transactions on Terahertz Science and Technology during the calendar year, that is judged to be the most significant contribution in the field of interest of the THz community. All past THz Prize papers can be viewed here.


  1. Special issue on the 29th IEEE International Symposium on Space Terahertz Technology (ISSTT 2018) is scheduled for publication in November 2018. Submissions of extended papers are due on June 30, 2018. Guest editors: Boris Karasik and Imran Mehdi.
