Key Laboratories in France Select TeraView
TeraView, the pioneer and leader in terahertz solutions and technology, has been chosen to supply systems to the Georgia Tech-CNRS laboratory in Metz and the LOMA laboratory at the University of Bordeaux 1. The systems were selected due to their superior performance, ease of use and the Company’s track record with its existing customers.
A TPS Spectra 3000 system will be located at Georgia-Tech Lorraine in the Georgia Tech-CNRS Unité Mixte Internationale 2958, an international joint laboratory between the Georgia Institute of Technology and the French Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique (CNRS). Professor David Citrin is in charge of the laboratory and brings a wealth of experience and knowledge of terahertz physics in imaging and non-destructive testing of various materials.
The second TPS Spectra 3000 system will be delivered to the Laboratoire Ondes et Matière d’Aquitaine (LOMA), a joined research unit of the University of Bordeaux 1 and CNRS. Professor Patrick Mounaix, who is the director of research at the Short Laser Applications and Materials (SLAM) group at LOMA, will utilize the system for postal inspection and other materials characterisation requirements. His expertise in terahertz imaging and time-domain spectroscopy has delivered significant contribution to the research of THz applications in solid state physics.
These sales strengthen TeraView’s links with world-leading THz researchers and key opinion leaders. ‘The addition of two premier French laboratories, with truly international reach, to our list of collaborators is an exciting opportunity to enhance the Company’s technology footprint across Europe and beyond ’said Dr Don Arnone, TeraView CEO. The sales add to the Company’s growing base of clients and helps strengthen its position as the market leader for terahertz systems.
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 spectroscopy and imaging. A spin out from Toshiba and Cambridge university in 2001 and employing circa 25 staff, TeraView has been developing the technology across a number of applications including the semiconductor, analytical and industrial inspection markets. The Company has over 70 systems in the field with customers in over 20 countries. Headquartered in Cambridge UK, sales and support are available throughout Asia, North America and the EU either directly or through a network of distributors
