Hamamatsu Develops World's First THz Image Intensifier

Hamamatsu Photonics has developed the world’s first terahertz image intensifier (THz image intensifier or simply THz-I.I.) by leveraging its imaging technology fostered over many years. This THz-I.I. has high resolution and fast response which allows for real-time imaging of terahertz wave (*) pulses transmitted through or reflected from target objects.

This THz-I.I. will be unveiled at “The 69th JSAP (Japan Society of Applied Physics) Spring Meeting” held at the Sagamihara Campus of Aoyama Gakuin University (in Sagamihara City, Kanagawa Prefecture, Japan) for 5 days from Tuesday, March 22 to Saturday, March 26.

Terahertz waves are electromagnetic waves near a frequency of 1 THz and have the properties of both light and radio waves.

  1. Time to start wearing tinfoil underwear, as clothing is transparent to Terahertz waves... :D

  2. Just massivley wetting yourself is a good action against being seen through with THz. One should chose the technique based on personal circumstances...
