Leading semiconductor test equipment supplier Advantest Corporation (TSE:6857, NYSE:ATE) will promote its new TAS7500TS THZ wave spectroscopy and analysis platform at the International Conference on Infrared, Millimeter, and Terahertz Waves in Tucson, AZ. The TAS7500TS is an optical sampling system that enables full coverage of applications from R&D to industrial testing, and is part of the company’s TAS7500 family of compact and multipurpose terahertz spectroscopic / imaging systems. The flexible design of the new system allows the user to freely configure the terahertz source and detector modules, creating unparalleled versatility. This system can be paired with a variety of terahertz source modules covering three different spectral ranges within the terahertz frequency band. With in-line, at-line, on-line, and off-line capabilities, Advantest’s terahertz systems are suitable for R&D, Quality, Manufacturing, and Process Analytical Technology (PAT). Additionally, Advantest’s David Heaps will present a paper titled , An Investigation of Petrochemical Geological Samples by Terahertz Pulse Spectroscopy, which demonstrates that the THz spectra can be used to get different chemical and structural information from a potential hydrocarbon source. The International Conference on Infrared, Millimeter, and Terahertz Waves (IRMMW-THz), is the oldest and largest continuous forum devoted to the science and technology of long-wavelength radiation. The conference will be held at the University of Arizona in Tucson from September 14-19, 2014.
