Imaging Using Terahertz Radiation

Dr. Daniel Mittleman
ECE Department
Rice University

Traditionally, the region of the spectrum between 100 gigahertz and 10 terahertz (corresponding to the wavelength range 30 microns - 3 mm) has been among the least explored, due in part to the difficulties associated with efficient generation and detection schemes. However, the recent development of a number of new experimental techniques has sparked a growing interest in the use of terahertz radiation for imaging, spectroscopy, and a variety of commercial applications. This talk presents an overview of this rapidly developing field, and a description of a few of the unique imaging capabilities of the "T-ray" imaging system. For example, by combining interferometry with the coherent detection capability of time-domain spectroscopy, it is possible to form time-of-flight images with a depth resolution well below the Rayleigh limit
