Imaging the terahertz domain

Imatera will design, manufacture and characterize a focal plane array, and to demonstrate its ability in producing terahertz (thz) images at room temperature. This will be realized through the integration and miniaturization of dedicated antennas for thz sensing. This sensor will allow us to build up a thz camera set-up for multi-purpose applications in the following domains: concealed weapons detection for public security, medical imaging, landmine detection and airplane security, chemical detection in atmosphere pollution context.
