Terasense Group, Inc.
Terasense Group Inc. is a leading manufacturer of innovative portable terahertz (THz) imaging systems, Terahertz imaging cameras, THz sources and THz detectors. Our products balance at the cutting edge of scientific and technological breakthroughs and have a number of competitive advantages. Terasense is a research-focused company committed to the concept of continuous improvement. We employ original patent-protected technology for making new type of semiconductor detectors for imaging sensor arrays (cameras), which effectively cover sub-THz and THz ranges of electromagnetic spectrum (50 GHz — 700 GHz).
TeraSense has developed an original patent-protected technology for making a new generation of semiconductor detector arrays for terahertz imaging. The detectors developed by TeraSense have good sensitivity compared to other available detectors working in THz range (0.1 — 0.7) THz. TeraSense detectors have an advantage with their low cost and ease of fabrication in large quantities in the form of 2D arrays, thanks to compatibility of the TeraSense technology with mass-production lines of semiconductor industry. The detector arrays are scalable in the number of pixels. With the use of TeraSense imaging chips, an extremely compact and sensitive THz camera can be produced. It is essential that spatial resolution of such a camera is around 1 mm and registration time is less than 1 second. That makes it possible to effectively use TeraSense imaging chips for medical diagnostics, non-destructive testing and many other terahertz applications.
