“Century of light” pioneered by invisible light

The 21st century is often referred to as the “Century of Light”; however, it does not mean that the light has been used up. In particular, the invisible light, such as “ultraviolet light”, “infrared light”, and “terahertz light”, has different characteristics from “visible light” and therefore has even greater potential. Such invisible light has a potential to lead to the creation of photonic innovations that are essentially different from the past. In this seminar, I will introduce a potential of the invisible light.
