Imaging camera

RIGI uncooled microbolometer camera and objective. Several options available:

Laser The system engine is a standard Toptica laser for THz systems with fiber compensation and soft mode-locking for optimum THz performance. The laser is extremely reliable with zero failure rate in all of our systems for years now.

Emitter & Detector Fraunhofer HHI antennas (commercialized exclusively by Toptica Photonics & Menlo Systems DE). Type 1: standard with specifications. Type 2: high power (new model) with power up to 300 uW.
