Where are Terrahertz on the spectrum band?
are they on the spectrum band?
Im thinking live TV applications here.
Perhaps a board could be embedded in broadcast cam heads.
an end to live truck tethered cables.
Its possible now but with line of sight bulky transmitters.
But I'm no engineer, so I could have read that article all wrong.

I don't know where Terra is, if is more than Giga, or what. What is intersting is solid state replaced bulky electron tubes, now however they found that for shortest wavelengths solid state can't handle it and somone figure how make tubes as small as smallest transistors and fit them inside integrated cirduit instead transistors.

Terra is giga times 1,000. A terrabyte equals 1,000 gigabytes.

By hard drive manufacturers' yardsticks, 1 TB = 1000 GB, but computer engineers think 1 TB = 1024 GB. (Owing to digital computers' binary nature, blocks of bytes are addressable only by powers of 2; 1024 = 2^10.)

Interesting article, BTW.
