Terahertz Imaging and Terahertz Spectroscopy
The Pharmaceutical Technologies group have a unique Terahertz 3D imaging and spectroscopy facility. This non-invasive, non-destructive diagnostic and inspection system offers significant advantages in healthcare and product development.
Terahertz utilises the previously unexplored region of the light spectrum to measure intermolecular vibrations while providing imaging on a micron scale. It delivers information and image maps containing unique signatures unavailable at other wavelengths.
The range of applications is diverse, from detecting cancer to developing aerospace composites. In product development, it can identify potential pre-production problems, resolving questions unanswered by optical imaging and infra-red, and saving businesses time and money.
