Terahertz radiation is also known as submillimeter radiation, terahertz waves, tremendously high frequency (THF), T-rays, T-waves, T-light, T-lux or THz – consists of electromagnetic waves within the ITU-designated band of frequencies from 0.3 to 3 terahertz (THz), although the upper boundary is somewhat arbitrary and is considered by some sources as 30 THz. One terahertz is 1012 Hz or 1000 GHz. Wavelengths of radiation in the terahertz band correspondingly range from 1 mm to 0.1 mm. Because terahertz radiation begins at a wavelength of around one millimeter and proceeds into shorter wavelengths, it is sometimes known as the submillimeter band, and its radiation as submillimeter waves, especially in astronomy. This band of electromagnetic radiation can be regarded either as microwave radio waves or far infrared.
Terahertz radiation is strongly absorbed by the gases of the atmosphere, and in air is weakened to zero within a few meters, so it is not usable for terrestrial radio communication. It can enter thin layers of materials but is blocked by thicker objects. THz beams transmitted through materials can be used for material characterization, layer inspection, and as an alternative to X-rays for producing high resolution images of the interior of solid objects.
Global OverView :
The global terahertz (THz) radiation devices market is growing with a momentous rate, due to growing reputation of techniques such as infrared (IR) and ultrasound. Terahertz radiations are used to inspect, control, monitor, the ultrasound and infrared techniques. Terahertz radiation technologies are switching a smaller amount of safe technologies, such as x-ray and nuclear, due to their capability of penetrating over barrier materials for executing non-contact and non-ionizing testing. Terahertz radiation technologies unwrapped the scope for many new applications in biomedical fields and telecommunications, which is further lashing the development of the global terahertz radiation devices market.
The expanding application of terahertz technology in a number of industries for quality check and process control monitoring is expected to enable terahertz components and systems to register a remarkable rise in the coming years. For instance, Non-destructive analysis (NDT) of the internal structure of objects (quality control of products), also THz cameras tech is quite effective in finding defects in sealed packages of food products under various enclosures.
On the basis of enabling technologies, the terahertz radiation devices and systems market can be considered as THz waveguides, THz detectors, THz sources, and THz regulators, switches, lenses and other devices. On the basis of type, the terahertz radiation devices and systems market can be categorized as communication devices, therapeutic devices, sensors, imaging systems, computers and spectroscopes.
On the basis of end users, the global terahertz radiation devices and systems market can be categorized as healthcare, security or public safety, scientific research, manufacturing, multipurpose, and military or defence. The global terahertz radiation devices and systems market can also be categorized on the basis of application as astronomy, medical imaging, passenger screening, land mine and IED detection, process or quality control, compact and low-cost THz cameras, diagnostics, target gaining and identification, and art and archaeology.
Terahertz gap creates interferences in the practical applications of terahertz radiations. Terahertz gap refers to the technologies that are required to channelize, generate, and detect terahertz radiation exposed to real-world constraints, such as operating temperatures, cost, and size. However, the recent developments in terahertz radiation waveguides, sources, and detectors have been minimizing the terahertz gap. All this is supporting the growth of the global terahertz radiation devices and systems market in various applications, such as non destructive testing, medical imaging, and transportation security.
Regional Analysis :
Terahertz radiation devices market is the fastest-growing market in the APAC region. APAC’s growth is attributed to the rising adoption of process control in multiple businesses as well as huge investments in R&D activities pertaining to terahertz technology by key players based in the region.
Further, owing to the augmented scope of manufacturing in the region, several regulations make it compulsory for manufacturing plants to sustain a life assessment procedure as a safety measure. Regular inspection is needed to check for any damage in the equipment and take required countermeasures to control them. This situation is expected to create an enhanced opportunity for Terahertz radiation devices in the manufacturing sector in the APAC region.
Moreover, Asia Pacific countries like Japan, China, South Korea and, India are expected to grow at a significant rate as compared to the other region in the terahertz technology market and will see a good growth rate in the future. APAC countries are expected to have great opportunities for terahertz radiations devices market due to the wide presence of manufacturing firms in countries, such as China, and India.

Bruker : Bruker Introduces Updated B.I.QUANT-UR™ Module for Fully Validated Metabolite Quantification in Urine using NMR
Important Note: the methods and solutions described in this press release are for research use only and not for use in clinical diagnostic procedures
Feb 17: Bruker today announces the release of the B.I.QUANT-UR module, the only analysis solution on the market that complies with DIN-ISO criteria for the identification and quantification of urine metabolites on Bruker’s nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) in-vitro diagnostic research (Avance IVDr) platforms. The module automatically quantifies up to 150 endogenous and disease-related metabolites from urine, allowing users to obtain precise, sensitive and fully reproducible results, even below the limit of detection (LOD).
NMR produces highly reliable quantification values from a single experiment, which would traditionally require multiple tests with different sample preparations using techniques such as conventional gas chromatography mass spectrometry (GC-MS) or ion exchange chromatography mass spectrometry (IEC-MS). B.I.QUANT-UR combines the raw concentration of a compound with quality assessment parameters to obtain reliable quantification results, and has demonstrated great potential in clinical and translational research. The new module introduces two additional parameters to provide confidence in quantification: signal correlation (ρ,%) to characterize the match between the lineshape metabolite signal and the calculated fit, with color coded flags added for improved visualization; and concentration error (Δ,mmol/L), for the concentration equivalent of the difference between metabolite signal and the calculated fit.
A key challenge in quantifying metabolites in urine is the complexity of the sample, which contains thousands of compounds generating multiple NMR signals. A unique feature of B.I.QUANT-UR includes DIN-ISO conformant wet spiking, to identify correct signals where there is significant overlap. This upgraded version of the successful B.I.QUANT-UR 1.0 module represents another iteration of a unique feature known as numerical spiking, where pure compound spectra of all 150 metabolites are automatically added to more than 20,000 urine spectra, and subjected to the quantification algorithm to determine the respective probabilistic LOD.
Dr. Manfred Spraul, CTO of the Applied, Industrial and Clinical (AIC) Division at Bruker BioSpin, commented: “Here we have a fully validated research use only system including DIN-ISO spiking – with which B.I.QUANT-UR is fully compatible. With this module, users can go substantially below the LOD to obtain meaningful results and use the two new parameters to judge if the result can be trusted, in order to achieve substantially more quantifications than before.”
