About Us

Founded in 2003, Applied Research and Photonics, Inc. (ARP) is based in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. ARP has demonstrated a number of products based on its proprietary nanotechnology. ARP technology received the prestigious NASA TechBrief’s nano-50 award in 2007 and 2008. ARP inventions have earned several patents (awarded and pending). ARP’s terahertz spectrometer, TeraSpectra, uses a high power terahertz source for high resolution spectroscopy. ARP is also developing nanophotonic integrated circuit (nPIC©), a chip based platform technology. ARP has envisioned a number of products based on its proprietary nanotechnology.

ARP is commercializing terahertz line of instruments including Terahertz Spectrometer (TeraSpectra©), sub-surface nanoscanner and 3D imager, scanning reflectometer for skin scanner and thickness profiling, ballistic analyzer, terahertz reflective interferometer for paint and coating layer analyzing. Terahertz technology provides the next generation capabilities, overcoming the so-called terahertz gap, with new spectroscopy applications in this spectrum range.
