Where am I?
We developed a terahertz scanner for quality control of glass-fiber reinforced plastics which are commonly used in aircraft construction today.
Using terahertz waves enables layer thicknesses to be measured non-destructively and without making contact. It also opens up the possibility of inspecting multi-layer systems.
With the use of terahertz spectroscopy, chemical substances can be detected and identified. Our spectrometer detects the chemical fingerprint of substances (gases, liquids, solids).
