Abstract
Terahertz radiation, which lies between microwave and infrared, has been shown to have the potential to use very low levels of this non-ionising radiation to detect and identify objects, such as weapons and explosives, hidden under clothing. This paper describes recent work on the development of prototype systems using terahertz to provide new capabilities in people screening. In particular, it explores how hyperspectral terahertz imaging and the use of both specularly reflected and scattered terahertz radiation can enhance the detection of threat objects.
