ANN ARBOR, Mich., Jan. 29, 2015 — A handheld terahertz gauge from Advanced Photonix Inc. can be used to measure material thickness for quality control in the aerospace and nondestructive testing markets.
The T-Gauge SPG (single-point gauge) is designed for at-line manufacturing environments and makes use of THz frequencies to nondestructively penetrate many opaque materials such as plastics, rubber, paper, paint and other coatings.
The handheld tool is connected to a T-Ray 5000 intelligent terahertz control unit (TCU) that provides the optoelectronics that drive the T-Gauge SPG.
