T-Ray Science, Inc. Files Two Provisional Patents
VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Oct. 15, 2008) - T-Ray Science, Inc., ("T-Ray", the "Company") an emerging leader in the field of TeraHertz ("THz") research, announced today that it has filed for provisional patent protection with the U.S. Patent and Trade Mark Office on a Dual Mode THz Spectroscopy and Imaging System and a Device for Carrying a Plurality of Photoconductive Antennas.
T-Ray's Dual Mode THz Spectroscopy and Imaging System is only the second Dual Mode Spectroscopy system in the world. The Company currently holds an exclusive patent license from MIT for the rights to the first Dual Mode System, giving T-Ray exclusive, world-wide rights to the only two Dual Mode THz Spectroscopy systems available.
The Company's Device for Carrying a Plurality of Photoconductive Antennas is a critical component of THz imaging systems. It is essentially a Chip Holder which holds up to four THz photoconductive antennas used for generating and detecting THz radiation. A further innovation is that the T-Ray Chip Holder with its THz chips has dual mode capabilities, with the ability to work in either pulsed or continuous wave THz systems. T-Ray will be able to use the Chip Holder in its own Dual Mode System as well as market the product as a critical component in other THz systems for a wide variety of applications.
"Our revolutionary Dual Mode Spectroscopy and Imaging Systems, in addition to our innovative Chip Holder, represents ground-breaking technological advances in THz research", says T-Ray President and CEO Thomas Braun. "This platform technology also forms the foundation for the future development of portable scanning devices that can be used in medical offices, skin care clinics and other non-hospital locations."
