Terasense has developed original patent-protected technology for making a new type of semiconductor detectors employed in terahertz imaging systems that operate at room temperature.

The detectors can be combined into a compact and inexpensive sensor array (similar to CCD/CMOS sensors in a photo camera). The company is developing imaging applications for THz and sub-THz frequency ranges based on its sensors. The detectors proposed by Terasense have excellent responsivity comparable with similar products in the market meant to operate in the same sub-THz range (0.1 – 0.7 THz). However, unlike other detectors, our devices can take credit for low-cost, uniform pixel-to-pixel sensitivity (pixel-to-pixel deviation of the responsivity is less than 20%). On top of that, Terasense can easily produce them in large quantities in the form of 2D arrays, as our technology is fully compatible with mass semiconductor manufacturing lines.

TERA-1024, our indisputable best-seller, provides real-time (24 Hz) high-quality imaging in the sub-THz range and has the following characteristics:

• Certified frequency range: 0.02 – 0.7 THz
• Number of pixels: 1024
• Pixel Size: 1.5 x 1.5 mm2
• Responsivity: 50 kV/W
• Noise Equivalent Power: 1 nW/√Hz
• Size: 10 x 10 x 5.5, cm
• USB powered (5V)
• Terasense Viewer® Software
• one year warranty period

TERA-256 & TERA-4096 models are also available.

APPLICATIONS

  • Homeland security
  • Beam profiling systems
  • Hidden objects & defects Identification Medical diagnostics
  • OEM applications (NDT)
  • Petrol & oil quality control

All the above capitalize on terahertz waves capability of penetrating optically opaque materials, as well as imaging and identifying microscopic structures through spectral analysis.
