Euler-Lagrangian modelling of THz energy modes of ensemble oscillation in protein systems

Supervisor: Dr Robert Donnan

Research group(s): Antennas and Electromagnetics

The challenge of this topic is to assign labels of mechanical action to measured THz transmission spectra. A corollary of this topic is to up-grade the experimental capability of the THz laboratory to undertake high-quality 2D time-domain spectroscopy in order to more finely resolve spectral information. The capacity to cleanly measure THz energy action in bio-molecular systems, and understand the origins of the spectra, is fundamental to elucidating mechanisms of disease and potential drug development.
