can you please look at the manual to see that T_0 is a pattern
that never matches and iwT is a single symbol and not I*w*T and
find out that Sqrt[-1] is denoted by I and not by i ?

If you know all that you can type

Y = Integrate[Exp[-T^2/(2T0^2)]Exp[I*w*T], {T, -Infinity, Infinity}, 
    Assumptions -> {Element[{T0, w}, Reals] && T0 > 0}]

and get
