TeraView Supplies Two Terahertz Systems to Leading Research Institutes in China
The University of Electronic Science and Technology of China (电子科技大学), Chengdu, and The National Institute of Metrology (中国计量科学研究院) have both recently installed TeraView’s TPS Spectra 3000 spectrometers. The systems were selected due to their superior performance, ease of use and the Company’s track record with its existing customers in Asia.
The system at UESTC will be used by Prof Xiaodong Chen Visiting Professor from Queen Mary University London. Prof. Chen, who heads the department of Microwave Engineering in the Department of Electronic Engineering at QMUL, has a long standing history in the area of terahertz radiation research and has been a key contributor to the international terahertz community. The second TPS Spectra 3000 system at the National Institute of Metrology is supplied with TeraView’s unique medical probe which provides three-dimensional information revealing structures beneath the surface with spatial resolution precision of 20 μm axial resolution of 40 μm.
“The growing interest in terahertz science and technology from China and recent developments in the area by prominent Chinese researchers have been remarkable” commented TeraView’s CEO, Don Arnone. “The success of our Asian business is evidence of our commitment to provide these customers with total solutions to their business needs, which is of up-most importance to users in this region. Being selected by such high-profile institutions strengthens TeraView’s position in the region as the leading supplier of turn-key terahertz systems. “
Terahertz light lies between infra red and microwaves, and as such has unique properties which enables it to pass through objects and to transmit images and compositional (spectroscopic) information that is ordinarily hidden. Terahertz is non destructive, safe and fast, making it the ideal inspection and imaging modality for many applications across a range of industries. TeraView has demonstrated the potential of terahertz technology in a number of applications including the detection of hidden weapons and explosives in security screening, monitoring the quality of pharmaceutical drugs, high value coatings used in automotive and other industries, as well as medical imaging of cancer.
TeraView is the world’s first and leading company solely focused upon the application of terahertz light to provide solutions to customer issues. A spin out from the Toshiba Corporation and Cambridge University, TeraView has developed its proprietary technology across a number of markets. These include fault analysis and quality assurance for semiconductor chips used in mobile computing and communications, as well as non destructive inspection of high value coatings used in the automotive, pharmaceutical, food and solar industries. With the largest number of systems in the field, as well as applications know-how made available to customers via a team of dedicated scientists using intellectual property and knowledge in peer-reviewed scientific publications, TeraView is uniquely placed to deliver the business benefits of terahertz to customers. Headquartered in Cambridge UK, sales and customer support are available throughout the Far East, North America and Europe either directly or through a network of distributors.
