Terahertz in practice

Avoiding spoilage of packaged food is a problem each food producer is facing and non-destructive early stage detection of packaged food quality deterioration is a real challenge.  Experts from France, Flanders and the Walloon region give insights on current developments and address challenges in food packaging and food waste. Potential solutions using Terahertz sensor technology will be presented. The event will end with a demonstration of the sensor developed as part of the INTERREG Terafood project. In addition to the results obtained in the project, two leading French companies in THz inspection systems will present their recent developments in their technology and Terahertz product portfolio.
