#### Hertz to TeraHertz

Terahertz (THz) frequency range (0.1 THz — 3 THz) is the last span within the whole electromagnetic wave spectrum, which has not been technologically and commercially developed. Because of that terahertz frequency range is often referred to in the world’s scientific literature as the «terahertz gap». At the same time it is well known that this frequency range has incredibly fascinating prospects for many applications. THz radiation possesses three unique properties, which stimulate development of the whole terahertz industry. The major advantage of terahertz waves (of sub-terahertz frequency range 0.1 THz — 0.3 THz) is that many materials which block visible and IR spectra, reveal to be transparent in terahertz.

To convert a hertz measurement to a terahertz measurement, divide the frequency by the conversion ratio.

Since one terahertz is equal to 1,000,000,000,000 hertz, you can use this simple formula to convert:

terahertz = hertz ÷ 1,000,000,000,000

The frequency in terahertz is equal to the hertz divided by 1,000,000,000,000.

#### For example

here's how to convert 5,000,000,000,000 hertz to terahertz using the formula above.

5,000,000,000,000 Hz = (5,000,000,000,000 ÷ 1,000,000,000,000) = 5 THz

#### Hertz

Hertz is formally defined as the frequency equalling one cycle per second.

The hertz is the SI derived unit for frequency in the metric system. Hertz can be abbreviated as Hz; for example, 1 hertz can be written as 1 Hz.

Frequency in hertz can be expressed using the formula:

Hz = Cycles/Times

#### Terahertz

Terahertz is a measure of frequency equal to one trillion cycles per second.

The terahertz is a multiple of the hertz, which is the SI derived unit for frequency. In the metric system, "tera" is the prefix for 1012. Terahertz can be abbreviated as THz; for example, 1 terahertz can be written as 1 THz.
