The work to develop a new camera that delivers high accuracy using terahertz waves with lower operating costs in part of a European Union project called TeraTOP. Terahertz frequencies occupy a section of the electromagnetic spectrum between the microwave and the optical ( 300GHz to 10THz). In security screening applications terahertz imagers can provide higher-resolution images than existing millimetre wave imagers. The researchers believe terahertz imaging has new potential if it were possible to simplify the manufacturing processes and reduce the need for extensive cooling of the imager system during operation. The TeraTOP’s researchers believe they have created a camera is based on technology that has the potential to significantly lower production costs and enable future mass production of terahertz cameras and imagers. Key to TeraTOP’s research was finding a way to de...
