Terahertz sensing

Non-destructive, contact free measurements with Terahertz

Terahertz radiation is increasingly employed in industrial environments for process monitoring and material inspection. The layer thickness of coatings, the structure of polymer components or imperfections in non-conductive materials can be investigated. In addition, THz spectroscopy allows for the detection of (toxic) gases.
