Terahertz measurement technique resolves individual layer thickness within multilayer coatings

By April Gocha / July 15, 2016

Scientists at University of Kaiserslautern and Fraunhofer Institute for Physical Measurement Techniques in Kaiserslautern, Germany, have developed a technique that uses time of flight measurements from terahertz pulses to resolve individual layers within multilayered surfaces—now all the way down to 4 micrometers.

Mid-holidays edition: Peel-and-stick solar panels For all their promise, solar cells have frustrated scientists in one crucial regard: Most are rigid. They must be deployed in stiff and often heavy fixed panels, limiting their applications. So researchers have been trying to get photovoltaics to loosen up. The ideal: flexible, decal-like solar panels that can be…
