Terahertz Time-domain Spectroscopy - Explanation - Advantages of THz Radiation
... THz radiation has several distinct advantages over other forms of spectroscopy many materials are transparent to THz, THz radiation is safe for biological tissues because it is non-ionizing (unlike ... Since many materials are transparent to THz radiation, these items of interest can be observed through visually opaque intervening layers, such as packaging and clothing ... Though not strictly a spectroscopic technique, the ultrashort width of the THz radiation pulses allows for measurements (e.g ...
Terahertz Time-domain Spectroscopy - Detection
... Two common detection schemes are used in THz-TDS photoconductive sampling and electro-optical sampling ... THz pulses can also be detected by bolometers, heat detectors cooled to liquid-helium temperatures ... field over time, it is not suitable for use in THz-TDS ...
