THE SCOPE OF THE RESEARCH

WG5 deals with assessing the market potential of terahertz applications and developing, for selected applications, specifications and demo versions displaying the highest possible technology readiness level. The group is engaged in developing technologies of manufacturing household appliances based on terahertz waves. It also deals with building the CENTERA brand as a world-class THz centre and with protecting the intellectual property created as part of the CENTERA project. WG5 experts are in charge of filing patent applications for the inventions, devices and systems created by other research teams.
