Abstract
Terahertz technology is getting fast development in scientific research and the characteristics of terahertz beam is of great importance when using a terahertz laser. In this paper we scan the THz beam along its diameter by a slit and a circular aperture to measure the THz beam’s power distribution and thus get its spot’s size. The results show that the beam spot of the THz source we employed is satisfied with Gaussian distribution. The value of the peak power would affect the determination of the spot boundary, the influence of environmental noise will increases when the the peak power become weak and the measured spot diameter will be too large ultimately.
