TeraView Establishes Asian Presence
With a growing list of customers in Asia, TeraView has taken the step of establishing an initial base in the region. The first office is located in Seoul, and is intended to enhance the service, technical support and applications-specific expertise which TeraView offers its customers and commercial partners in the region.
The new office will be managed by Mr Bong Cho, who joined TeraView in 2012 after many years of experience working for companies active in the semiconductor inspection and non-destructive testing industries.
“These are exciting times at TeraView and there is significant untapped potential within the Asian market,” said Mr Cho. “We now have machines across Asia and increasingly with industrial partners. We need to ensure that we continue to provide these customers and partners with the best possible support. This office shows our commitment to our existing customers and commercial partners in Korea, and also to the wider region”.
Don Arnone, CEO TeraView said “Asia is increasingly important to TeraView, and we need to strongly support and expand our business in the region. We now have offices in North America, Europe and Asia, and continue to expand our customers support in all regions. “
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.
