16th international symposium on space terahertz technology was held at Chalmers, May 2-4, 2005. This was the first time the terahertz meeting was held outside US. More than 150 delegates attended (Europe, US and Asia) and 146 scientific papers were presented.
The meeting was organised by research groups at the microwave electronics laboratory, MC2, and Onsala space observatory (GARD). Latest result on terahertz technologies for space applications were presented such as sensitive superconducting electronics (HEB/SIS), detectors, sources and systems. New applications of terahertz technology, e.g. for biotechnology, were also presented by Peter Siegel, Caltech (invited talk). Furthermore, we offered lab tours through MC2 on Monday, conference dinner at Elfsborg Fästning on Tuesday and finally a trip to Onsala space observatory after closing the scientific meeting on Wednesday afternoon.
Next symposium will be held in Paris, May 2006!
