TeraNova B.V. is a recently established start-up company embedded in the departments of Applied Physics and Electrical Engineering of the Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e). The mission of TeraNova B.V. is to develope and commercialize terahertz (THz) technology and provide know-how and support to high-tech companies in the BrainPort region of the Netherlands.

THz waves are low energy electromagnetic waves that can be used to measure the quality of semiconductors without the need of electrical contacts. We have developed novel THz technology that enables high-resolution imaging of the photo-conductivity of large-area semiconductors.

TeraNova B.V. also provides measurement services in the optical, near-infrared, terahertz and gigahertz range of the electromagnetic spectrum, combining state-of-the-art laboratory equipment, spectroscopic techniques and analytical methods.

TeraNova, the first interdepartmental Applied Physics/Electrical Engineering start-up founded

In 2015, the FLUX building, hosting the departments of Applied Physics and Electrical Engineering of TU/e, was officially opened. Bringing two departments under the same roof should increase the collaborations, improve the impact of research, and open new and unexpected opportunities. One of these new opportunities has become a reality this week: the first interdepartmental start-up company, TeraNova B.V., has been founded.
