Paper Abstract

Terahertz is a field in expansion with the emergence of various security needs such as parcel inspection and through-camouflage vision. Terahertz wavebands are characterized by long wavelengths compared to the traditional infrared and visible spectra. However, it has recently been demonstrated that a 52 μm pixel pitch microscanned down to an efficient sampling pitch of 26 μm could provide useful information even using a 118.83 μm wavelength. With this in mind, INO has developed a terahertz camera core based on a 384x288 pixel 35 μm pixel pitch uncooled bolometric terahertz detector. The camera core provides full 16-bit output video rate.
