Paper Abstract

The potential of terahertz technology has been clearly demonstrated by its large applications in security and defence (remote detection of object). A flexible alternative monochromatic millimeter wave system coupled with an original infrared temperature sensor has been developed to visualize large size 3D manufactured opaque phantoms with different refractive index contrasts. The results clearly illustrate applied terahertz tomography particularities such as boundary effects, refraction and diffraction losses that must be prevented for efficient inspection and detection.
