The contract from the Naval Undersea Warfare Center (NUWC) is valued at approximately $1,000,000 (including all options) for further development of a high-speed imaging system for the detection of corrosion under marine coatings....

Improvements in MRIs, Passenger Screening, Other Image-Detection Applications on the Horizon
2014-06-12 03:33:14

Mike Janes - Sandia National Laboratories 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, airport passenger screening, food inspection and other applications. A paper in Nano Letters journal, “Carbon Nanotube Terahertz Detector,” debuted in the May 29 edition of the...

Light Converted To Sound For Weapons Detection, Medical Imaging
2014-05-20 03:22:07

Nicole Casal Moore, University of Michigan A device that essentially listens for light waves could help open up the last frontier of the electromagnetic spectrum—the terahertz range. So-called T-rays, which are light waves too long for human eyes to see, could help airport security guards find chemical and other weapons. They might let doctors image body tissues with less damage to healthy areas. And they could give astronomers new tools to study planets in other solar systems. Those...

Pitt invents the world’s smallest terahertz detector Molecules could soon be “scanned” in a fashion similar to imaging screenings at airports, thanks to a detector developed by University of Pittsburgh physicists. The detector, featured in a recent issue of Nano Letters, may have the ability to chemically identify single molecules using terahertz radiation—a range of light far below what the eye can detect....

Medical diagnostic and security scanners with higher sensitivity could result from University of Adelaide research into detecting T-rays (terahertz waves). Published in the journal Advanced Optical Materials, the researchers describe a novel structure which traps terahertz waves in tiny (micro-scale) holes to produce much higher contrast imaging than currently possible. Terahertz waves, which are electromagnetic waves with frequencies between those used for mobile phone communications...

Single Pixel Terahertz Imaging Advanced With Laser Guided Codes

Boston College [ Watch the Video Laser Guided Terahertz Imaging ] 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. Most existing THz imaging devices employ prohibitively expensive technology or require several hours and cumbersome manual...

New Terahertz Chips For New Devices
2012-12-10 19:11:57

Lee Rannals for redOrbit.com — Your Universe Online A new set of microchips designed at the California Institute of Technology pave the way for a new generation of devices. The chips created by the Caltech engineers generate and radiate high-frequency electromagnetic waves known as terahertz (THz). These waves fall between microwaves and far-infrared radiation and are able to penetrate materials without damaging them, unlike X-rays. The new microchips could be incorporated...

Word of the Day
  • A cloth or covering, more or less ornamented, laid over the saddle or furniture of a horse, especially of a sumpter-horse or horse of state.
  • Clothing, especially sumptuous clothing; equipment; outfit.
  • To cover with a caparison, as a horse.
  • To dress sumptuously; adorn with rich dress.
This word ultimately comes from the Medieval Latin 'cappa,' cloak.
