Advanced Terahertz Photonics for Enhanced Productivity and Reliability


See the invisible

Teratonics offers innovative solutions for contactless non-destructive testing and imaging inside dielectric materials and on coated metallic surfaces. Our non-hazardous technology reveals invisible defects and can simultaneously control the dimensions.

At lightning speed?
At the speed of light!

The ground-breaking innovation in terms of speed and stability allows exploiting the unique potential of ultrashort pulses of terahertz frequencies in industrial environments, also on large scaled and moving objects.

Our solutions –
targeted to meet your needs

Based on the patented technology and our profound know how on its application, we offer:
  ► Instruments for product and process control as well as for inspection with automated evaluation
  ► Laboratory services accompanying industrial R&D, fatigue tests, during + end of life studies

Use cases

Defect Detection in Composites


Control of Assemblies


Contactless Control of Coatings


And much more!

Teratonics’s solution selected after comparative tests

Teratonics has been selected by an industrial consortium to set up a control procedure for 100 percent online inspection of particularly light and high performance plastic components. Our technology is the only one retained in the last project step, it was chosen out of different non-destructive testing methods such as ultrasound approaches, acousto-optics and other THz approaches via test measurements.
