OP13 - 3D-Terahertz-Tomography for Material Inspection and Security

Torsten Loeffler
The increasing use of novel materials and production technologies increase the demand for new nondestructive testing solutions. At the same time worldwide terrorism leads to a strong request for advanced security technology. Terahertz and millimeter-wave imaging (THz imaging) is a novel measurement technique, which can serve both application fields. However, in the past THz imaging was not mature enough to fulfill the numerous industrial and commercial needs. The main limitation was a limited dynamic range...
