Terahertz imaging and spectroscopy

Speaker: Marion Matters

Company/ Institute: TU Eindhoven

Event: 14th work meeting – Remote Sensing Technologies

Date: 10 December 2013


In this presentation we discuss systems and applications for generating 3D images using very-high-frequency radio signals. Research in such systems is in the early stage worldwide, but we expect this technology to enable many applications in gaming, security, medical and robotics areas.
Our ambition is to realise technologies that enable 3D image generation of the near environment with a low-cost, small device. Further into the future, terahertz observation will offer other potential benefits as well, such as information about the velocity and chemical composition of the objects in the image.
We will zoom in on our research towards small, inexpensive THz observation sensors with a narrow scanning radio beam.
