Linear scanning system for THz imaging

Not Accessible

Abstract

A linear scanning system utilizing constant wave 280 GHz radiation has been developed and characterized. The system comprises a linear array of detectors based on a unique plasma wave approach in terahertz sensing, an impact ionization avalanche transit-time-diode signal generator coupled to a frequency multiplier and an optical system. The performed tests allowed us to estimate the resolution of the system reaching the value of 2.3 mm and to determine the dynamic range of the system to be around 200. The imaging capabilities of the scanner were tested in realistic cases of non-destructive testing and security screening.
