First Terahertz Machine In India
TeraView, (http://www.teraview.com/) the pioneers and world leaders in terahertz technology are pleased to announce the installation of its first machine in India. The unit, believed to be the first “plug and play” terahertz machine in the whole of India, has been sold to Terascanning Pty. The highly flexible machine combines terahertz spectroscopy, imaging and a medical probe for R&D.
The machine will initially be used for research into cancer imaging, whilst also being available to run technology demonstrations and to provide an analytical service to other interested parties.
“We are very excited to have TeraView’s first unit here in India” said Ian Grundy, TeraViews SVP of Global Sales “Its presence will help people see the true potential of the technology and we are optimistic that this will generate further interest within India.”

About Terahertz, TeraView and Terascanning
Terahertz sits in the electromagnetic spectrum between infra red and microwaves. Its unique properties allow the waves to pass inside of objects and to transmit information relating to composition and structure. The technology can be used for chemical analysis and to generate 3D images.
Such a unique capability has potential across a wide range of industries and applications. As world leaders in the area, TeraView now has machines in circa 15 countries and proven applications within pharmaceutical development, homeland security, medical imaging, semi-conductor fault analysis and inspection, and non-destructive testing.
