Research Application Development
The T-Ray 2000® is ideally suited to research applications requiring spectroscopy and/or imaging capabilities from 0.02 to 3.0 THz. A sample of applications include gas, liquid, and solid spectroscopy; materials inspection; fault detection; package inspection; radar return modeling; T-Ray® imaging; T-Ray® tomography; semiconductor wafer inspection; reaction kinetics monitoring; medical/biological imaging research; and Homeland Security solutions.
The design of the T-Ray 2000® incorporates many unique innovations. The T-Ray 2000® is fully fiber-optic coupled for high reliability and maximum flexibility in both laboratory and industrial environments. The heart of the T-Ray 2000® technology is Picometrix's miniature fiber pigtailed terahertz module. These terahertz transmitter and receiver modules, which have been packaged to Telcordia telecommunication standards, are permanently aligned and hermetically sealed. By creating a rugged device which is also appropriate for OEM use, Picometrix has enabled the rapid adoption of terahertz applications from the laboratory to the factory floor. The T-Ray 2000® is fully computer controlled and features integrated software for spectrum and image processing.
The T-Ray 2000® system includes the Transmitter, Receiver, Control Box, Grating Dispersion Compensator and Computer with Software. A ~100 fs laser source capable of coupling 40 mW into the fiber, 780-850 nm, 80 MHz repetition rate is required. The T-Ray 2000® is a system that is turn-key and easy to use.
