Terahertz Light for Measuring Coating Thickness and Paint Defects

by 

David Reece


Abstract

Terahertz light lies between infrared and microwaves. TeraView has been developing terahertz technology and applications for over 10 years in several industries. Rapid, non-destructive and non-contact, low power terahertz light pulses can accurately measure individual layer thickness of a multiple layer paint coating and can be used to rapidly scan large areas with multiple readings. This can enable 100% quality inspection of multiple panels and also be used as a diagnostic tool for defects and process development. This talk will discuss advances in the use of terahertz light from the research arena towards real world applications in industry. Demonstrating work initially developed for measuring pharmaceutical tablet coatings, applications within automotive and industrial paint and coating applications will be discussed.
