A compact THz imaging set-up at 750 microns

Terahertz imagers can use the advances in the infrared domain in order to reduce the cost and size. Counter to IR systems, THz systems must include a source, and this influences overall imaging system size and cost. In this paper, a description of a compact real-time imaging system at 750 μm wavelength will be presented, as well as an overview of the motivation for the wavelength choice, a description of the imaging components is given, and image results are presented
