Leading semiconductor test equipment supplier Advantest Corporation
(TSE: 6857, NYSE: ATE) today announced that its terahertz spectroscopic
imaging system TAS7500, which utilizes Advantestís THz wave technology,
has been adopted by Seoul National University.
Advantest expects that the adoption of this system by Seoul National
University will accelerate the spread of terahertz analysis technology
to other universities, private-sector companies, and research
facilities, driving higher demand for Advantestís terahertz products.
ďThe TAS7500SP delivers ease of operation as well as performance, so we
can now offer analysis capabilities to researchers working in diverse
fields, such as bioscience and materials, who need access to areas of
the terahertz spectrum where the difficulty of analysis was formerly
prohibitive. I invite other South Korean researchers make use of the
TAS75000SP technology, which can support advances in research across a
wide variety of fields,Ē said Professor Gun-Sik Park, Director of the
Center for THz-Bio Application Systems at Seoul National University.
Advantest has led the development of analysis and imaging technology
utilizing terahertz waves, which lie between 0.1 and 10 THz on the
electromagnetic spectrum, between the microwave and infrared wavebands.
The TAS7500SP exploits the unique properties of THz waves to perform
non-destructive, contact-free analysis of the interior structures of
samples in solid, liquid, or powder form. It is part of the lineup of
terahertz analysis systems Advantest has launched since April 2010,
targeting the pharmaceutical industry among other diverse markets, which
also includes the TAS7500SU and TAS7500SL, for wide-band and
low-frequency analysis, respectively; the TAS7500IM 2D/3D imaging and
analysis system; and the TAS7500TS, a spectroscopy and analysis platform
that expands the applications of the technology by enabling free layout
of the area to be measured. The companyís systems offer high performance
and industry-best throughput, meeting diverse measurement needs from R&D
to volume production.
