Paper Abstract

We present a focal plane terahertz (THz) ray imaging system through use of a big-size <100> oriented ZnTe electro- optic crystal plate. Some concealed living insects and moving objects have been directly imaged and the dynamic processes of the THz field distributions are clearly displayed, both in real-time model. We also discuss the maximum and minimum sizes of the available imaging objects in this THz imaging system, and give ways to improve them.
