TeraView Expands Customer Base in Korea
TeraView (https://teraview.com/), the pioneer and leader in Terahertz solutions and technology, has secured a key order from the Gwangju Institute of Science and Technology (GIST) in Korea.
GIST is one of the country’s most prestigious research institutes, ranking first in the number of publication per staff in recent surveys. TeraView will supply its TPS Spectra 3000 system to GIST for terahertz research and materials characterisation. TeraView’s system was chosen over that of its competitors due to its ease of use, superior performance and the company’s track record.
The sale adds to TeraView’s growing installed base in the Korea, and helps strengthen its position in the growing Asian market. Dr Don Arnone, TeraView’s CEO stated: ‘Yet another sale of the TPS spectra 3000 in Korea adds to the growing list of prestigious customers for this product in the region. This sale is also of wider strategic benefit as Korea increasingly serves as a technology leader for the Asia-Pacific region. When combined with other orders and our strong pipeline this order has helped to give us a great start to our new financial year’.
Terahertz waves sit in the spectrum between Infrared and Microwave and as such have unique properties which enables them to pass through/into objects, and whilst so doing to transmit images and spectra which provide unique information in a safe, fast and non destructive manner.
TeraView is the world’s first company devoted to the application of Terahertz light for imaging and spectroscopy. TeraView’s proprietary platform uses the Terahertz spectrum between light and radio waves and offers the advantage of being non-invasive and non-destructive. Past studies have demonstrated how Terahertz uniquely and non invasively provides 3 dimensional structural and chemical information in a diverse range of applications, including semiconductors and solar cells, weapons/explosives hidden below clothing, the contents of tablets and capsules in the pharmaceutical industry, and other objects normally invisible to conventional detection techniques. Other markets for the technology exist in medical imaging of cancer and industrial inspection which are explored via commercial partners. Headquartered in Cambridge, UK, TeraView was spun-out of the Toshiba Cambridge Research Laboratory in April 2001. Sales and support are available throughout Europe, North America and the Far East either directly or through a network of distributors.
