Paper Abstract

Analogous to microsphere optical nanoscope, an easy and low-price method of THz imaging is proposed and developed for improving the spatial resolution beyond the diffraction limit. By attaching a 2-4 mm diameter Teflon sphere, a narrow, high-intensity, subdiffraction-waist THz beam with a strong jet-like distribution propagates into the background medium from the sphere’s shadow-side surface and a subwavelength spatial resolution better than λ/3 is demonstrated. Furthermore, the dielectric sphere-coupled THz microscope not only enables far-field, large-area measurement but also characterizes high-throughput and broad-band imaging properties. In addition, the size effect on terajet of dielectric sphere was simulated and shows that its magnification capability and focal length are size-dependent and frequencysensitive.
