Onderzoeksoutput: Conference paper


Here, we demonstrate experimentally the potential of Terahertz radiation (TerMIR) to detect and diagnose Chemical Biological Radiation and Nuclear (CBRN) threads by monitoring bio-chemical processes, such as protein crystallization, antibody-protein binding, solid suspension homogeneity and other, using a state-of-the-art Terahertz sensor technology developed at ETRO-IR (VUB). The developed sensor technology comprises several sensor solutions that feature number of advantages: (1) possibility to fabricate a sensor that operates at any frequency between 10 GHz and 400 GHz (2) that can operate with liquid volumes from ranging from 1 nL to 100 mL (upper level is not limited) and (3) most importantly the sensor can be tuned to have the highest sensitivity for any liquid of interest with certain dielectric permittivity. Based on this sensor technology a number of instruments can be developed to detect hazards, monitor industrial processes and diagnostics in the field of chemical, biological, radiological and even nuclear domains.
