Paper Abstract

We have suggested a wide range of real-life applications using novel terahertz imaging techniques. A high-resolution terahertz tomography was demonstrated by ultra short terahertz pulses using optical fiber and a nonlinear organic crystal. We also describe a non-destructive inspection system that can monitor the soot distribution in the ceramic filter using millimeter-to-terahertz wave computed tomography. Further we report on the thickness measurement of very thin films using high-sensitivity metal mesh filter. These techniques are directly applicable to the non-destructive testing in industries.
