Live Demonstration: Terahertz sensing

T-Sweeper: Realtime cw Terahertz spectroscopy

Terahertz is a key technology for non-destructive material testing. Major advantages are examinations without physical contact and the analysis of complex systems with a low contrast range, in which established methods like ultrasonic usually fail. The Fraunhofer Heinrich Hertz Institute HHI has successfully developed a cost-efficient and compact measurement system that conducts real-time measurements of the thickness of multi-layer systems for the first time, an essential technology e.g. for lacquering lines.

The new terahertz measurement system T-Sweeper will be presented live at the IMTS trade fair.
