terahertz_precisionThe Picometrix T-Gauge® Sensor is the world’s first terahertz sensor for online process control, quality control, and non-destructive testing. The T-Gauge® Sensor provides an alternative to legacy technologies that require excessive regulation and control. Unlike x-rays the T-Gauge® does not emit ionizing radiation and unlike nuclear gauges is not radioactive. Terahertz energy will penetrate opaque materials, allowing measurements to be performed on any non-conductive material.
