TeraView strengthens customer support in North America
TeraView, the pioneer and leader in Terahertz technology and solutions, has appointed Dr Tom Juliano as one of its Applications Engineers, based in New York. Dr Juliano is a recent graduate of Syracuse University where he was awarded a Ph.D. in Chemistry whilst studying under Professor Tim Korter. His research included the use of terahertz spectroscopy and solid-state density functional theory to explore small organic molecules. Dr Juliano will provide additional customer support within North America in areas such as pharmaceuticals, non-destructive testing and the automotive industry.
Dr Phil Taday, Principal Scientist at TeraView and head of TeraView’s Applications Group, commented “TeraView has provided excellent practical support to its customers with respect to measurements and experiments. With the appointment of Dr Juliano, we are now able to provide additional theoretical understanding to the spectra observed in the terahertz region. We are unique amongst our peers in being able to provide such a service to our customers. Dr Juliano will also provide valuable practical support to our industrial customers using our systems to address their product issues.”
Professor Korter, currently Head of the Department of Chemistry at Syracuse University commented “This is an excellent example of the result of international collaboration between universities and companies based in the US and Europe, and between the academic world and industry in the two regions.”
Dr Don Arnone, TeraView CEO commented “There has been a long-standing collaboration between TeraView and Syracuse University, and these efforts have helped TeraView enhance our customer support and scientific presence in North America, both of which are key to our future success and that of the technology.”
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.
