TeraCascade is a compact, user-friendly and powerful terahertz source based on state of the art quantum cascade laser technology.

  • Powerful >1mW
  • Compact =10Kg
  • Userfriendly 100%

TeraCascade provides all features you need in a single box



Maximum reliability

The TeraCascade laser uses the most reliable components available in the market. For example, the cryo-cooler is rated for 200.000 hours of MTBF, which is equivalent to more than 23 years of 24/7 operation.

Ready, whatever your application is

Versatility is one of the most important aspects. To achieve maximum flexibility in your application, Lytid has designed a custom laser driver based on several years of user feedback. This allows you to develop any kind of applications.

Focused on output quality

The beam quality of a laser source is a crucial point, in particular for imaging application. The TeraCascade laser offers a quasi-Gaussian beam profile and a low beam divergence for an optimal imaging capability.

State-of-art technology at everyone’s reach

The TeraCascade laser is designed with an automatic start-up and shutdown procedure and an easy access to all operating parameters on a touchscreen


4.3” touchscreen control, to fully control the parameters:
