    Article obtained from Photonics RSS Feed.

    A team of researchers is working on developing an artificial intelligence-based terahertz radiation (t-ray) scanning unit to address the limitation of infrared thermal scanner in accurate and early detection of coronavirus patients.

    The researchers — Moumita Mukherjee associate dean, Adamas University (Calcutta), and formerly associated with DRDO center, and Dinesh Bhatia, associate professor, biomedical engineering department of the North Eastern Hill University (Nehu), Shillong — and their collaborative research group are currently working on the scanning unit.

    Mukherjee and Bhatia said the unique absorption fingerprint of t-ray radiation in lungs and the contrast thermal image of affected and healthy lungs will…
