Scitech announces their appointment as the official distributors for US-based
company TeraSense Group Inc. in Australia and New Zealand.
A leading manufacturer of innovative portable terahertz (THz) imaging
systems, terahertz imaging cameras, THz sources and THz detectors, TeraSense
addresses applications in research, industry and OEM manufacturing.
THz imaging technology finds application in the following areas:
Manufacturing process control, products and materials inspection, food
Mammography, bone tomography, endoscopy, medical diagnostics, detection of
cancer and other diseases.
Detecting the contents of packages or sealed documents.
Detection of concealed weapons and explosives; evaluation of biological
threats; airline passenger screening.
Environmental sensing, pollution detection, plasma diagnostics, chemistry and
TeraSense has developed an original patent-protected technology for a
new generation of semiconductor imaging systems for terahertz (THz) and sub-THz
frequency ranges. TeraSense devices bridge the terahertz gap (0.1 – 1) THz. Terahertz
detectors at the heart of the imaging system come with advantages such as low
cost and ease of fabrication in large quantities in the form of 2D arrays,
thanks to compatibility of the technology with mass production lines of the semiconductor
TeraSense uses proprietary IMPATT and backward-wave oscillator (BWO)
technologies for terahertz generation purposes. These THz sources allow
delivery of up to 1 W power at sub-THz frequencies (0.1 – 0.3) THz.
