Latest Terahertz nondestructive evaluation Stories
ANN ARBOR, Mich., June 27, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Advanced Photonix(®) (NYSE MKT: API) announced that it has been awarded an advanced development contract for Phase II Terahertz Imaging for Detection
Researchers at Sandia National Laboratories, along with collaborators from Rice University and the Tokyo Institute of Technology, are developing new terahertz detectors based on carbon nanotubes that could lead to significant improvements in medical imaging.
A device that essentially listens for light waves could help open up the last frontier of the electromagnetic spectrum—the terahertz range.
Reportbuyer.com just published a new market research report:
Molecules could soon be “scanned” in a fashion similar to imaging screenings at airports, thanks to a detector developed by University of Pittsburgh physicists.
Medical diagnostic and security scanners with higher sensitivity could result from University of Adelaide research into detecting T-rays (terahertz waves).
The universe is awash in terahertz (THz) waves, as harmless as they are abundant. But unlike other regions of the electromagnetic spectrum, THz has proven to be extremely difficult to manipulate in order to capture novel images of objects and materials with which these light waves interact.
A new set of microchips designed at the California Institute of Technology pave the way for a new generation of devices.
