Terahertz waves – a spectral range with a great deal of potential

The terahertz range has been comprehensively technically exploited for the first time in the last few years. With frequencies between 0.1 and 10 terahertz (THz), this spectral range lies between microwaves and infrared radiation. The corresponding wavelengths range from 3 mm to 30 µm.

Terahertz waves unite the advantages of the two neighboring spectral regions: high penetration depth and low scattering combined with good spatial resolution are characteristic properties of terahertz waves. Unlike UV radiation or X-rays, for example, terahertz waves do not change the chemical structure of substances and materials. Consequently, they are not harmful to humans.

Products and Services

Terahertz Time-Domain Spectroscopy

Terahertz time-domain spectroscopy (TDS) has proved to be a reliable method of non-contact and non-destructive characterization of materials.

Terahertz Imaging

Non-contact Terahertz imaging systems detect manufacturing defects or imperfections in the material during production, i.e. without having to interrupt the ongoing production process.

Opto-Electronic Systems Design

We develop terahertz systems including evaluation software to meet customer requirements.

Terahertz Components

We develop and manufacture customized antenna and offer user-friendly and universally applicable mounts for photoconductive switches.

Time-Stretching Systems for Real-Time Signal Analyses

Optical time stretching technology offers unexpected possibilities for the analysis of high frequency signals in real time.

Network Analyzer Tera-VNA

By developing extender modules, we were possible to boost the bandwith of network analyszers up to 2 THz.
