T-Ray Sublicenses Technology to TeraView

Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email
VANCOUVER, British Columbia, July 22, 2010 — Medical device company T-Ray Science Inc. has granted a sublicensing agreement to TeraView Ltd. of Cambridge, UK, to use certain continuous-wave (CW) terahertz technology originally patented by MIT and licensed exclusively to T-Ray.

TeraView offers a range of advanced terahertz spectrometers, including the CW Spectra 400, which uses the sublicensed technology. The system generates a continuous wave that features a tunable frequency emitted and detected via a set of proprietary, fiber-fed terahertz photomixers. It is suitable for spectroscopy and imaging applications on a range of objects and materials.

Under the terms of the agreement, T-Ray will collect royalties on the sales of the spectrometer and other products that use its CW generation in the US.

Its platform terahertz imaging technology is suitable for many applications, including homeland security; the detection of explosives and ceramic knives; process control in the paper, plastics, petrochemical and pharmaceutical industries; and medical imaging for the detection of skin and other cancers.

In addition, terahertz waves are an alternative to scanning methods including high-frequency ultrasound, magnetic resonance imaging and near-infrared imaging.

process control
The collection and analysis of data relevant to monitoring the rate and quality of industrial production, either continuously or in batches. Corrections can be made manually or automatically, via a feedback control loop.
The successive analysis or synthesizing of the light values or other similar characteristics of the components of a picture area, following a given method.
A kind of spectrograph in which some form of detector, other than a photographic film, is used to measure the distribution of radiation in a particular wavelength region.
