Paper Abstract

Guided terahertz pulse reflectometry uses a near field probe to couple a wave in a waveguide. The signal is then reflected depending on the impedance at the end of the waveguide. We experimentally use a near field antenna from Protemics which have two photoconductive antennas on the same chip. The first is excited with laser on frond side et the second on the back side. We associate to this antenna a waveguide to couple a wave and we determine the localization of the end. We observe at this position a change of the signal depending on the impedance. This topology can be used for remote imaging without lens or optics of for non destructive test of 3D electronics packages. Finite Differente in Time Domain simulation were also used to evaluate coupling and origin of losses at each transition.
