TeraPulse – The Next Generation Terahertz Spectrometer and Imaging System from TeraView
TeraView is pleased to announce the launch of its new Terahertz system, the TeraPulse 4000.
Building on the success of the TPS Spectra 3000 which has become the industry standard in Terahertz instrumentation, the TeraPulse 4000 offers the same industry leading performance and reliability, all within a single, compact unit. Smaller, lighter and more portable, the TeraPulse is equally at home in a laboratory or industrial environment.
The system is available with an on-board spectroscopy/imaging compartment (as shown above) or with fibres. The fibre based system can then accept various ‘plug and play’ sample modules, enabling a range of different Terahertz applications that have been developed by TeraView over the last decade. Both configurations are fully compatible with TeraView’s existing and extensive range of “plug and play” modules, which allow users to quickly and economically expand their Terahertz capabilities.
The system is also supplied with a new software suite which fully integrates the improved spectroscopic and imaging capabilities of the unit into one common platform.
Dr Don Arnone, TeraView’s CEO stated “TeraPulse represents a substantial investment by TeraView in the future of Terahertz instrumentation, developed with extensive feedback from our customers around the world. It takes all of the reliability, stability and improved performance achieved over the last several years, and puts them into a smaller, lighter package with enhanced capabilities. The TeraPulse 4000 is designed to serve as a versatile core unit which can be configured for a variety of laboratory, production and other industrial applications. We are also planning other exciting additions to the TeraPulse range over the coming months, which come out of our continued commitment to R&D of Terahertz technology as well as close collaborations with our customers and partners. ”
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.
