Said API CEO Richard Kurtz: “This is a great opportunity to showcase the environmentally green and non-harmful aspects of using our patented terahertz technology to solve some of the most difficult quality control and nondestructive testing applications around the world.”

Terahertz radiation occupies a spot on the electromagnetic spectrum between microwaves and infrared light. Little understood and hard to generate before the 1990s, “T-rays” are now being eyed for a variety of testing and security applications. Among their most interesting properties — they “see through” many materials without packing the damaging, ionizing punch of X-rays.

21st Century Business is an award winning targeted business show that is independently produced by MMP USA Inc. The show provides its business viewers an in depth opportunity to find solutions to the industry problems from some of the top business leaders from across the world.
