Paper Abstract

Terahertz imaging has attracted much attention in recent years, because the technique can be applied to many application fields such as nondestructive analysis and imaging method through opaque materials. A terahertz real-time imaging technique (Terahertz Camera) considered increasingly important in the future has been developed. The terahertz camera consists of a light source (Terahertz quantum cascade laser) and an un-cooled micro-bolometer array, which can easily get real-time terahertz-image. As an application of the terahertz camera, a stand-off imaging system that could be useful in a fire disaster relief and a label-free bio-materials detection system have developed and demonstrated.
