Application of pumping laser pulses in cancer treatment, material sciences and in other fields
Summary:
The high-intensity terahertz research group of a Hungarian university studies the medical application of pumping laser pulses, utilizes its findings in the field of development of X-ray devices. With the use of the findings, much cheaper devices can be developed than currently. The group looks for partners who intend to use its services and seek research cooperation in the field of life and medical sciences - e.g. cancer treatment -, material sciences and other fields.
Description:
The technology offer of the Hungarian research group having large experience in the field of research and application of laser technologies and secondary light sources and generation and application of extreme high electric field strength terahertz pulses, related to the possible use of pumping laser pulses in the treatment of cancer.

The terahertz radiation is an electromagnetic radiation such as radio waves, visible light or even X-ray radiation. Currently the highest, electronically generated frequency is few times 10 gigahertz.
The generation of terahertz pulses - which have a frequency thousand times bigger than gigahertz - with the help of ultra-short laser pluses have been started quarter of century earlier. The terahertz pulse created in this way contains essentially one cycle.

The R+D projects of the recent years in the university made it possible to show that the efficiency of the generation of the terahertz pulses can be centuplicated by using pumping laser pulses longer than the ones applied previously, even the energy of 10 millijoule terahertz pulses will be possible to generate.
If one focuses on them, 100 MV/cm field strength will be achievable as well. With the help of such field strengths, the charged particles can be manipulated efficiently as well, and such applications can lead to the building of X-ray free electron lasers and ion accelerators which are ten times shorter and therefore much cheaper.
The latter can be used in hadron therapy i.e. the destruction of cancerous tissues with high energy ion beam. A patent application was submitted for such use of extreme high field strength terahertz pulses, while two other applications are under preparation.

Instruments:
THz pump-probe equipment
Pumping laser
High intensity, special wave length ultra-short pulse lasers

Possible areas of use:
Cancer treatment
Medical imaging
Airport security check
High-speed data transfer systems (Tb/s wireless).

Other areas of use:
The terahertz radiation has several possible areas of use, e.g. safety service. The terahertz radiation passes over the most packaging material, therefore with the help of multispectral terahertz imaging it is possible to uncover the biological weapon or drug without opening the envelope.


The Hungarian research group intends to cooperate with its partners in the field of cancer research, medical imaging or development of certain data transfer systems, within the frameworks of research agreement and/or services agreement.

Any type of partners are welcome who have satisfyingly deep knowledge about the possible areas of application of pumping laser pulses but lack the equipment or scientific knowledge. Ideally the partnership would operate along mutual advantages. The Hungarian university awaits its would-be partners who have interesting theories to put into practice or problems to be solved within the reasonable limits. The details of cooperation are to be specified during the negotiations.
Also participation in joint RDI proposal can be considered.
Advantages and Innovations:
- The higher THz pulse energy makes it possible to prepare the spectrally resolved images more quickly.
- With the high Emax field strength of the high energy THz pulses the macromolecules can be oriented for structural tests.
- High positioning accuracy
- Slight thermal zone
- Dynamic heat stress
- High corrosion resistance.

Partner sought

Type and Role of Partner Sought:
The research group looks forward to negotiate with any type of partners active in public, economic and research sector who have insight in the application areas of pumping laser pulses.
The group would conclude services agreement for the use of its existing research services or enter into research cooperation with industrial and (university) research partners who make the application of the findings possible.
The Hungarian research group envisages collaboration in the following fields:
- Cancer research,
- Medical imaging,
- Property protection and security systems, and
- Development of certain data transfer systems.
