TeraPulse 4000 – TeraView ships and delivers its first unit

Cambridge, UK – 26 March 2015
TeraView is pleased to announce that following launch the TeraPulse 4000 in February 2015, it has successfully installed a system at a world-leading research institute in France after winning a completive tender.
The system was provided to the Laboratoire Ondes et Matière d'Aquitaine (LOMA), a joined research unit of the University of Bordeaux  and CNRS (Le Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique). Professor Patrick Mounaix (, who is the director of research at the Laboratoire IMS- UMR 5218 CNRS - Groupe Nano - Equipe Laser, Université Bordeaux, Bat A31,  has a long and distinguished track record in terahertz-related research, and will utilize the system for postal inspection in the framework of InPoSec ( joint project funded by ANR (Agence Nationale de la Recherche)  and BMBF(Federal Ministry of Education and Research). The TeraPulse was supplied with external fibres to provide a flexible configuration for different experimental set ups.
Based on TeraView’s decade of experience providing and supporting terahertz systems, TeraView’s proprietary software platform has been re-written and substantially enhanced based on customer feedback. The new software package fully integrates the spectroscopic and imaging capabilities of the unit into one common user interface.  The system can also be supplied with its own LABVIEW interface to allow customers to configure the software into their own applications.
