The challenges of terahertz (THz) technology exist in the development of new or improved sources of THz radiation and detection technologies. In general, inexpensive, fast, and room temperature operation THz detectors are not readily available. A glow discharge neon lamp can serve as a THz detector, and holds great potential for various THz sensing and imaging applications. Neon lamps THz detector has many advantages such as low cost, fast response time, large dynamic range, broad spectral range, and room temperature operation. In this paper, the performance of the THz detector based on glow discharge neon lamps was evaluated. The detector was successfully used in a THz imaging system, the THz images obtained by the detector was demonstrated and compared with that obtained by a Schottky
