Shanghai Gaojing Radiography Technology Co., a major supplier of baggage inspection systems, has purchased the latest in industrial terahertz systems, the T-Gauge® terahertz sensor from API.  Terahertz has shown significant capability in detecting explosives, drugs, and other threats in packages or checked bags.  The T-Gauge® sensor was chosen because of its robust performance, its high-speed data acquisition, and its ease of integration.  The purchase was made with the assistance of the Terahertz Research Center of Tianjin University.  Both Shanghai Gaojing and Tianhin University are participating in a national program that is focused on integrating the terahertz system into a security scanner to detect explosives, drugs and other threats. This national program, with close to 40 participating research groups and $10 million in funding, has been formed to develop a new generation of security instruments that will be based on terahertz technology and be used to detect dangerous items such as drugs or explosives.  There is significant demand for this type of equipment in transportation, national security, pharmaceutical research, and generally to safeguard the public.  Tianjin will perform the research portion of the investigation, and Shanghai Gaojing will supply the systems integration.  The T-Gauge® was purchased through SkyRay OE, API's distributor in China.  

"We are excited to be able to represent API in bringing the latest in terahertz technology to the Chinese market.  API is known for supplying the best in terahertz products for industry and research," said Runxuan Wang, of SkyRay OE.
