29 September 1999 Analysis of system trade-offs for terahertz imaging
Author Affiliations +
The rapidly developing field of terahertz (T-ray) imagin promises to provide a non-invasive method of identifying the composition of various objects. Biomedical diagnostics, semiconductor device diagnostics, trace gas analysis and moisture analysis for agriculture are among the growing number of important T-ray applications. We present results using an electro-optical sampling method and discuss how this can be simplified by sign a micro antenna array realized by MEMS technology. The challenges and advantages of both approaches are compared.
