TeraView at a Glance
TeraView Limited is the world's leading innovator of terahertz imaging and spectroscopic systems
Our instruments provide a reliable and robust source of terahertz light and exploit its properties to characterise a wide range of materials. Our patented terahertz technology creates spectroscopic information and 3D images with unique spectroscopic signatures not found at other wavelengths. It resolves many of the questions left unanswered by complementary techniques, such as optical imaging, Raman and infrared. Terahertz technology also produces faster results than X-ray and enables non-destructive, internal, chemical analysis of materials with applications in a number of industries. Our mission is:
"To make terahertz technology affordable, accessible, and ubiquitous in everyday life."
Business model - solutions and support for end-users
TeraView seeks to exploit its TPI™ platform by working closely with industry though leaders, strongly supporting the implementation of our products and enabling researchers to discover new fields of application. The Company is also dedicated to providing end-users with the benefit of both our technology as well as expertise in the manipulation of terahertz light. To this end, we seek to provide complete solutions to our customers' business issues, using the considerable experience of our engineering and applications support teams, who have considerable knowledge of the optimization of Terahertz to address the issues faced by our customers.
TeraView is currently working closely with major pharmaceutical customers to support implementation of our products in pharmaceutical drug formulation, product development and manufacturing. The company also actively works with customers in the analytical instrumentation and defense sectors, including close support of government laboratories active in homeland security and other defense-related applications.
Where required, TeraView is also dedicated to developing alliances with commercial partners targeted at specific market applications for sales to and support of end-users. The Company currently has alliances with global leaders in the analytical instrumentation market, security and defense, and medical markets to support work with customers in these areas.
Two decades of experience
TeraView was spun-out of Toshiba Research Europe in April 2001 by its co-founders, Sir Michael Pepper (CSO) and Dr Don Arnone (CEO), to exploit the intellectual property and expertise developed in sourcing and detecting terahertz (1 THz= 33.3cm-1) radiation, using innovative semiconductor technologies. Leading industry proponents of the technology sit on our Advisory Board, and TeraView maintains close links with the Cavendish Laboratory at the University of Cambridge, where modern terahertz technology was pioneered in conjunction with the team at TeraView, and where Professor Pepper, has held the position of Professor of Physics since 1987.
Uniquely, the company has a wealth of experience in both the technology to generate, detect and manipulate terahertz light, as well as an extraordinary breadth and depth of knowledge in applications of the technology in different markets to solve real world problems for our customers. Both of these attributes are represented in our product offering to customers, as well as an impressive intellectual property portfolio that builds considerable value for the Company. The result is our proprietary TPI™ platform that can be configured to meet a variety of end-user needs.
Headquartered in the United Kingdom, the company has offices and representatives around the world. Pre- and post sales support is provided to our customers through a combination of direct support from the company, as well as a network of representatives throughout the world. TeraView prides itself on the quality of its on-going support for our customers, and we seek to work collaboratively with them to ensure that they get the maximum benefit from our products.
