15 Years of TAPS Research

Last week we interviewed Dr Lewi from Belgium about TAPS research, and realised that is 15 years since the very first paper was published describing TAPS.

Things have come a long way since then, and even we can’t believe the progress that has happened. There’s still a long way to go, but for now, we compiled a quick video that shows what we know in around 2 and a half minutes.

We’d love to thank the researchers who have dedicated their lives to TAPS research.

2020 marks 15 years since the first paper describing TAPS – what do we know about it?
