Paper Abstract

For the purpose of security inspection, an alternating current (AC) radiometer is used in passive THz Wave (0.1THz) imaging for the first time in china. Giving a comparison of structure and spectrum characteristic between direct current (DC) radiometer and AC radiometer, we discussed the AC radiometer imaging mechanism and the noise image disposal method based on the medium filtering. Simulating the requirement of safety inspection in airports, ports etc, a 2-D imaging experiment of the person with canceled object has been did indoor, by THz Wave AC radiometer mechanical scanning. The results show that THz Wave AC radiometer possesses higher sensitivity and can be used to inspect the concealed metal objects hidden in the passenger body and their luggage.
