Owing to its unique spectral characteristics, radiation in the 0.3-10 terahertz (THz) spectral range has drawn attention as a new and potentially powerful medium for next-generation imaging technology. Terahertz wavelengths are sufficiently short to provide sub-millimeter resolution capability, yet are also sufficiently long to penetrate most non-metallic materials. ? Currently, most terahertz imaging systems are based on either antenna-coupled semiconductor detectors or cryogenically-cooled bolometers operating in the relatively slow scan mode. ? In this presentation, real-time imaging in the terahertz spectral range using an uncooled microbolometer camera and a quantum cascade laser (QCL) will be discussed.
