Prof. Havenith’s group has pioneered THz absorption spectroscopy as a new, powerful tool able to study solute/solvent interaction. Using state of the art THz spectrometers, including a unique p-Ge spectrometer (2.4-2.7 THz), an FT spectrometer (50 - 500 cm-1), and time domain THz spectrometers (0-2 THz) allowed the detection of subtle changes in the dynamical orientation of water molecules by giving direct access to collective water network dynamics. In the future this technique will be used to obtain information on the socalled double layer in the vicintiy of the electrode of an electrochemical cell.
