TeraView, the pioneer and leader in terahertz technology and solutions, is pleased to announce its association with Cambridge University at this year’s Advances in Terahertz Spectroscopy Workshop to be held on 17th-18th March 2016 at Gonville and Caius College, Cambridge, UK.
The meeting is set to further strengthen the ongoing relationship that TeraView has built with the University, and will provide an excellent opportunity for industry to interface with practitioners of terahertz theory, applications and instrumentation.
The event includes notable speakers from the terahertz community. These include Dr Juraji Sibik, formerly of the University of Cambridge, who will speak on new methods for the detection and characterization of amorphous materials using terahertz spectroscopy. It will also include another TeraView collaborator, Dr. Tim Korter, one of the world’s foremost leading theoreticians on spectroscopy and organic materials, who will give an introductory talk on THz spectroscopy in the chemical sciences.
The event will also offer participants a look at TeraView’s latest additions to its new TeraPulse platform.
The event will be jointly hosted by Teranet, an EPSRC-funded network of UK Universities and companies active in terahertz science and technology, the Molecular Spectroscopy Group and the East Anglia Region of the Royal Society of Chemistry. It represents a substantial networking opportunity with access to academics and TeraView scientists.
TeraView’s Dr Phil Taday, who will contribute with a talk on ‘Industrial Applications of THz Spectroscopy’ said of the event “This signals a wonderful opportunity for UK terahertz scientists to meet, and provides the attendants with a great networking platform.”
Terahertz light lies between infra red and microwaves, and as such has unique properties which enables it to pass through objects and to transmit images and compositional (spectroscopic) information that is ordinarily hidden. Terahertz is non destructive, safe and fast, making it the ideal inspection and imaging modality for many applications across a range of industries.
TeraView has demonstrated the potential of Terahertz technology in a number of applications including the detection of hidden weapons and explosives in security screening, monitoring the quality of pharmaceutical drugs, high value coatings used in automotive and other industries, as well as medical imaging of cancer.
In the semiconductor industry, Electro Optical Terahertz Pulse Reflectometry (EOTPR) is the world’s first use of Terahertz to isolate the location of faults and manufacturing quality variations in integrated circuit packaging. EOTPR has been widely accepted by the leading semiconductor manufacturers as their tool of choice for isolating defects in advanced integrated circuit packages.
TeraView (www.teraview.com) is the world’s first and leading company solely focused upon the application of Terahertz light to provide solutions to customer issues. A spin out from the Toshiba Corporation and Cambridge University, TeraView has developed its proprietary technology across a number of markets. These include fault analysis and quality assurance for semiconductor chips used in mobile computing and communications, as well as non destructive inspection of high value coatings used in the automotive, pharmaceutical, food and solar industries. Headquartered in Cambridge UK, sales and customer support are available throughout the Far East, North America and Europe either directly or through a network of distributors.
