Terahertz is making waves in the plastics sector

from Plastics Engineering

Terahertz waves have been exciting researchers in the National Aeronautics and Space Administration and teaching hospitals for 50 years. NASA uses them to measure remnants of energy from the Big Bang and to test materials in the space program. Hospital labs are trying to use them to identify skin cancer cells in minutes instead of days. But practical industrial applications were nearly non-existent until six years ago. One of the first industrial uses of pulsed terahertz waves was in plastics, so used because of the wave’s unique ability to penetrate opaque, shiny, even black plastic, and “see” multiple layers. more
