|Title:||Imaging At 0.2 And 2.5 Terahertz|
|Abstract:||We report the development and initial results of two Terahertz imaging systems based on monochromatic sources at 0.2 and 2.52 THz. The first is based on a microwave oscillator, whose frequency is multiplied to 0.2 THz, used in conjunction with a zero-bias detector. The sample is scanned across the beam, and transmission images are obtained after processing. The second system allows real-time images, and consists of a methanol gas laser emitting at 119 microns (2.52 THz) and a commercial camera based on a microbolometer array. We describe the construction and performance of the methanol laser and a tunable CO 2 laser, which emits 20 W at the 9P(36) pump line. Due to the high coherence of the laser, this system is particularly suited for diffraction and interference imaging. We have measured the absorption coefficients of a few samples assuming the Beer law. © 2013 Copyright SPIE.|
