Backed by a strong team of skilled scientists and engineers, TeraSense has developed a revolutionary technology protected by patent to offer the world’s first high-speed sub-THz semiconductor camera as a part of their Terahertz (THz) and sub-THz frequency ranges imaging application program.

Operating at 0.05 - 0.7 THz frequencies, the TeraSense camera made most of the common materials transparent! These Terahertz cameras operate at room temperature and can take care of many imaging issues. The TeraSense sub-THz imaging systems are unique with their cutting edge technologies, scalable number of pixels and capability to look into the matter of things.

How it outwits the others?

There are various types of sub-THz detectors such as the Cryogenic superconducting and semiconducting bolometers, heterodyne detectors and Room-temperature bolometers and several kinds of diodes. All of these are expensive and suffer from low responsiveness. Moreover, as they are single detectors they must perform mechanical scan over the imaging surface to get a complete image, which complicates and stretches out the whole process of imaging. TeraSense products are void of such bottleneck issues and trump the competition thanks to their enhanced performance and relatively good sensitivity as compared to similar products. TeraSense technology is also low cost and compatible with mass production and therefore can be produced as 2D arrays. The absence of any moving parts makes them suitable for effective terahertz imaging applications.

TeraSense THz cameras

TeraSense THz cameras are available in different ranges such as 256 pixels, 1024 pixels and 4096 pixels for accommodating any budget provisions. The detectors are fabricated using GaAs high-mobility heterostructure and the imaging sensor is made on a single wafer. These devices enjoy room-temperature responsivity up to 50 kV/W and the detection mechanism is based on 2D electron system (2DES) plasma oscillation.

One can choose the following models considering requirements and budget abilities.

1. Tera – 256 Models

  • 256 pixels with 16 x 16 array
  • 1.5 x 1.5 mm pixel size
  • 50 kV/W responsivity with NEP=1 nW/Hz^0.5
  • 10 cm x 10 cm x 5.5 cm device size

2. Tera – 1024 Models

  • 1024 pixels with 32 x 32 array
  • 1.5 x 1.5 mm pixel size
  • 50 kV/W responsivity with NEP=1 nW/Hz^0.5
  • 10 cm x 10 cm x 5.5 cm device size

3. Tera – 4096 Models

  • 4096 pixels with 64 x 64 array
  • 1.5 x 1.5 mm pixel size
  • 50 kV/W responsivity with NEP=1 nW/Hz^0.5
  • 20 cm x 20 cm x 10 cm device size

Applications

TeraSense sub-THz semi conductor imaging camera has wide range of Terahertz applications in various fields from security to medical diagnosis.

  • It helps in hidden objects and faults identification using terahertz imaging technology and being non destructive in nature it does not harm the object.
  • TeraSense sub-THz camera can provide remote controlled concealed object detection even in crowd. These compact solutions can also be used for home security purposes.
  • TeraSense detectors are ideal for next generation point-to-point local area wireless connection and broadband internet access. Operating at 60 GHz to 700 GHz frequencies they can transfer data at 10 Gbit/s.
  • Can perform both time-domain spectroscopy and frequency-domain spectroscopy
  • Used for detection of water and other contamination in petroleum products
  • These are perfect core OEM parts for the products requiring penetrating vision.
