Project Start

Dec 8, 2022

The chair forMedical Engineering participates in the terahertz.NRW project starting in August 2022. Paul Hagemeyer will transfer tomographic reconstruction methods developed for ultrasound imaging at our chair to the THz range and will further improve these methods for 3D.

terahertz.NRW is a research network consisting of Fraunhofer FHR, University of Duisburg-Essen, Ruhr University Bochum, Fraunhofer IMS and University of Wuppertal, and it is funded by the Ministry of Culture and Science of North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany. The goal is excellent terahertz research in the fields of communication, localization, material characterization, medical technology and environmental monitoring. In the long term, the project terahertz.NRW is intended to transform research into concrete, commercial applications.
