Vermont Photonics, Goodrich get $3.5 million for terahertz

Oct. 18, 2004
Brattleboro, VT, October 18, 2004--The U.S. Army Research Laboratory will release a $3.15 million contract to Vermont Photonics and Goodrich Corporation to develop a novel spectroscopy system incorporating terahertz laser technology. The new funding will enable Vermont Photonics to move its terahertz laser technology out of the laboratory and into the real world for detecting biological agents and other applications.

Brattleboro, VT, October 18, 2004--The U.S. Army Research Laboratory will release a $3.15 million contract to Vermont Photonics and Goodrich Corporation to develop a novel spectroscopy system incorporating terahertz laser technology. The new funding will enable Vermont Photonics to move its terahertz laser technology out of the laboratory and into the real world for detecting biological agents and other applications.

Vermont Photonics and Goodrich Electro-Optical Systems (Danbury, CT) will build the spectroscopy system as a prototype for use in detection systems for defense applications.

"Vermont Photonics has developed the THazer to become a leading contender as a deployable THz source for both research and defense applications," said Tom Lowell, vice president of Vermont Photonics. "We expect this collaborative effort with Goodrich to result in an expanding role for THz in the scientific and defense community."

According to David Olson, vice president and general manager of Goodrich Electro-Optical Systems, the funding will further the application of terahertz spectroscopy and transmitters for biological agent detection.
