Ekspla T-SPEC Series Real-time Terahertz Spectrometer

t spec series real time terahertz spectrometer

The T-SPEC Real-time Terahertz Spectrometer offered by Ekspla is a powerful tool for investigative applications of pulsed terahertz waves. With simple and robust design, it is easy-to-use and adaptable to individual requirements. The unique design of microstrip photoconductive antenna fabricated on low-temperature grown GaAs substrate ensures broadband spectral coverage and high dynamic range. The system is designed with two delay lines: fast and slow. Fast scan line allows real time data acquisition with 10 spectra/s speed and 110 ps time window. Average of collected spectra can increase dynamic range to 70 dB at pulse maximum and extend spectral range up to 4.5 THz. Additional slow delay line allows combination of multiple time windows; thus spectrometer obtains excellent spectral resolution < 2.5 GHz. The fast scan line is designed without bearings and uses a magnetically coupled drive which makes it extremely reliable and significantly extends the lifetime. T-SPEC spectrometer has hermetic housing with mounted gas inlets. Read more.

Ekspla T-Fiber Series Fiber Coupled Terahertz Spectrometer

fiber coupled terahertz spectrometer t fiber series

The Fiber-coupled Terahertz Spectrometer T-FIBER, offered by Ekspla, features flexible and robust design. It has integrated femtosecond fiber laser with two fiber output ports. Comparing to common Ti:S oscillators, fiber lasers are smaller, cheaper, more reliable and feature parameters that are perfect for terahertz generation. Femtosecond laser, delay line and signal registration electronics are integrated in a single compact housing with footprint only 40×40 cm. Minimal set of free space optics used in spectrometer allows stable long time operation. Special “no bearing” design of fast delay line makes its lifetime practically unlimited. Delay line allows real time data acquisition with 10 spectra/s speed and 110 ps time window. Read more.

Toptica TeraSpeed Superfast Terahertz Screening Platform

TeraSpeed 01

  • Extremely fast measurements of terahertz pulse intensities (patent pending)
  • Photoconductive terahertz emitter + high-bandwidth Schottky receiver
  • Digital output: Data rates up to 500 kS/s, “snapshot” and “continuous” measurement modes
  • Analog output: Detection of individual terahertz pulses @ 100 MHz repetition rate
  • Robust setup without any delay stages or mechanically sensitive components

The Toptica TeraSpeed serves applications in quality control and process monitoring that require no spectral information, but call for terahertz intensity measurements at “extreme” speeds: the system is capable of detecting individual terahertz pulses at repetition rates as high as 100 MHz. An integrated data-processing unit converts the detected pulses to RMS values, enabling data streams at sampling rates up to 500 kHz – orders of magnitude faster than conventional terahertz systems. Bringing together several cutting-edge technologies, the TeraSpeed takes advantage of mature fiber laser technology, powerful photoconductive emitters and fast yet sensitive Schottky receivers.

Toptica TeraFlash: Time-domain terahertz spectroscopy

Toptica TeraFlash

TOPTICA introduces the new TeraFlash system, a table-top platform for time-domain terahertz spectroscopy. The all-fibre design is based on mature 1.5 µm telecom technology, combining TOPTICA’s established femtosecond fibre lasers and state-of-the-art InGaAs antennas.

Using a highly precise delay stage, the TeraFlash achieves a peak dynamic range of more than 70 dB. Users can choose between a “precisescan” mode and a “fast scan” mode. In “precise scan” mode a bandwidth of 4 THz and a resolution better than 10 GHz are attained. Alternatively, in “fast scan” mode, a pulse trace is acquired in only 50 ms. The fibre-coupled antenna modules can be conveniently arranged, depending on the needs of the experiment. Integrated in the system is TOPTICA’s FemtoFErb 1560, the most compact ultrafast laser on the market. The SAM mode-locked fibre oscillator and the usage of polarization-maintaining fibres ensure a high robustness and alignment-free, “hands-off” operation. The TeraFlash system is a perfect solution for applications such as high-bandwidth spectroscopy (e.g. of explosives or liquid crystals) and industrial process control.
