Breakthrough for Real-Time THz Imaging

Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email Comments

When paired with fast detectors, terahertz quantum cascade lasers are ideally suited for industrial nondestructive testing and real-time biomedical imaging.

PIERRE GELLIE, LYTID SAS

Terahertz (THz) technologies have become a major field of applied research, driven by the tremendous potential of applications such as nondestructive testing (NDT), biomedical imaging, security screening and telecommunications. Imaging using THz radiation has garnered increasing attention, as it promises penetrating, contactless and submillimeter diffraction-limited imaging that is suitable for dry, nonpolar, nonmetallic materials such as plastics and ceramics. The main challenge in achieving the full potential of THz imaging: the limitations in the performance of current THz sources and...Read full article
