Paper Abstract

To assess the potential application of terahertz waves in security examination, the transmission characteristics of terahertz waves in packaging materials should be studied. This paper simulates the propagation of terahertz waves in cloth and paper, studies the changes of shape and position of crest of terahertz waves before and after these materials, and gets the law of these changes, which has potential applications in thickness measurement for the thin insulated materials; gives reflected and transmitted wave of terahertz waves, and computes reflected and transmitted coefficient, indicates the good transmission properties of these materials for terahertz waves, which provides the theoretical basis for the realization of contactless security examination of packaged post, package and people pass the important passageway (such as airport and station).
