Terahertz Measurement Systems

The development of powerful emitters and rapid line detectors allows to create new industrial applications for THz imaging and tomography.

The Fraunhofer IOF offers the following services:

  • Design, development and realization of customized THz-systems
  • Imaging, tomographic and spectroscopic measurements

Terahertz generation

Semiconductor components and photoconductive material exited by a femtosecond fiber laser are the main sources of the THz radiation utilized in our laboratories. The fiber lasers required for the THz generation and detection are also designed and developed at Fraunhofer IOF.
