We hope your 2019 is off to a fantastic start and that exciting things are on the horizon for you this year!   Sitting at the proverbial round table here at THzDC, we are reflecting on the success and excitement of 2018.  The gas-sensing LED market continues to heat up, and as we set our […]

What is your Personal Air Quality™?

What is your PAQ™? Personal Air Quality, or PAQ™ (we really like acronyms with “Qs” here), is defined as knowing the quality/health of the air (CO2, CO, VOCs, and other gasses important for health) in your personal space and understanding what you are exposed to throughout the day. In recent newsletters and blog posts, we […]

Studies showcase cognitive impairment from increased CO2

This Harvard Study, conducted in Fall 2016, has gained some traction in recent months. It currently (at the time of this publication) has been cited an estimated 137 times! The gist of the article is that increased CO2 in your “personal air space” has a greater impact on your cognitive function than previously considered. This […]

You don’t make money sitting in traffic

Technology innovations advance at breakneck speed all around us, with widgets and chips for every device on the planet becoming nearly obsolete shortly after going to market. So it is tempting to want to bypass the technology Autobahn and stay on roads you are most familiar with despite the congestion. But as Wayne Huizenga, founder […]

Terahertz Device Corporation’s regulated pulse driver for the mid-infrared QuiC SLED

Salt Lake City, Utah (April 2015) – Terahertz Device Corporation announces a current-regulated pulse driver (RPD) for its QuiC SLED mid-infrared LEDs. The driver’s burst mode delivers short pulses of high current for maximum LED brightness without overheating, ideal for time-gating and peak detection where maximum brightness is crucial to performance. A quasi-continuous wave (qCW) mode […]

The QuiC SLED™ taken to the Sensors Expo

June, 2014 — The QuiC SLED™ taken to the Sensors Expo in Chicago. The 4.25 µm QuiC SLED, with emission lined up for carbon dioxide detection in the MWIR window, was introduced to the sensors community with a booth demonstration that features the LED also used as a photodiode to give a live demonstration of […]
