As the holidays approach and you're buying wine, ever wonder what's really in a cork?  Ask NJIT's John Federici, who has a new use for Terahertz imaging: searching for divots and cracks in wine corks to insure quality.  Using Federici's laboratory, which is devoted to sub-millimeter or Terahertz waves, the project, in collaboration with Amorim & Irmãos S.A. Portugal, the world's largest  natural cork producer, and sponsored by QREN, a Portuguese national program for development and innovation, is focused on detecting defects such as cracks and voids in the cork. >>
John Federici, a physics professor at NJIT, sees the use of terahertz rays as a critical technology in the defense against suicide bombers and other terrorist activities.  Federici and his research team recently described experimental results from a digital video camera invented in their laboratory that uses a terahertz imaging system.  One day such a device could be used to scan airport passengers quickly and efficiently. “Video-Rate terahertz Interferometric and Synthetic Aperture Imaging” appeared in Applied Optics (July, 2009).  >>

“What I think they were talking about today were liquid explosives based on nitroglycerines,” said Daniel Watts. Watts, a professor in the department of chemistry and environmental science at NJIT, is among five NJIT scientists and specialists available through Aug. 14, 2006, to discuss on the phone or in person the science and more of the thwarted terrorist plot in London. >>
2005
John Federici, PhD, a professor in the department of physics and other physicists at NJIT recently received a U.S. Patent for a Terahertz imaging system and method. Since 1995, Terahertz imaging has grown in importance as new and sophisticated devices and equipment have empowered scientists to understand its potential. “I see the Terahertz spectrum as one of the critical technologies for defense against suicide bombers and other terrorist activities,” Federici said. >>
New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT) holds University Convocation tomorrow, an annual celebration and awards ceremony that marks the start of the academic year and recognizes the accomplishments of students, faculty and staff members. The convocation ceremony takes place in the Jim Wise Theater in NJIT's Kupfrian Hall beginning at 2:30 p.m. There will be a reception for honorees in the hall's foyer after the event. >>
