Terahertz imaging: materials and methods
Terahertz (THz) imaging is rapidly developing. We present two new methods, based respectively on (a) a broadband thermal source (globar) and (b) a coherent, monochromatic source (optically-pumped THz laser). A room-temperature detector (Golay cell) is employed. Image quality is similar to that reported by others using more complex sources (quantum cascade lasers) and detectors (superconducting tunneling junctions).
