Paper Abstract

Millimeter-wave (mmw) imagers offer advantages for numerous applications, including: all weather reconnaissance, search and rescue, law enforcement, and security screening for homeland defense. The use of bolometer-based imagers for mmw provides potential advantages of low power, small size, weight, and cost. In addition, bolometer-based imagers provide the unique capability of detection over an enormous spectral range, i.e., from mmw through the sub-mmw (from 100 GHz through greater than 1 THz). We report on high-resolution materials transmission measurements as well as advances in mmw imager architectures that seek to exploit improved imager sensitivity and resolution enabled by operation at sub-mmw and THz frequencies
