Terahertz Technology comes Centre Stage

Terahertz Technology comes Centre Stage

One of the last frontiers. Little used because the devices are not good enough. It lies between the much used microwave and infrared frequencies. Terahertz electromagnetic radiation has come centre stage recently with major breakthroughs claimed for THz emitters, trillionth-of-a-second switches, modulators and the sensors and there are conferences on the subject in several countries.

Why Batteries are Essential for the Maritime Sector

Why Batteries are Essential for the Maritime Sector

In 2020 vessel owners have had to deal with an 'emissions control world' for the first time. Unlike most other mobility sectors, which predominantly tend to switch partly or completely to a traction battery in order to meet emissions targets, a mixture of solutions have a role to play for boats and ships.
