Abstract

Terahertz (THz) radiation has the characteristics of penetrating nonmetallic and nonpolar materials that are opaque to visible light, which makes THz digital holography have an application potential of imaging concealed objects with certain barriers. A CO 2 pumped continuous THz Gabor inline digital holographic imaging system was utilized to conduct experimental researches on imaging concealed objects. Paper, Teflon, a plastic express envelope, and silicon wafers were used as barriers. High-quality reconstructed images were obtained. Compared with the reconstruction results without any barriers, the results verify the feasibility of THz Gabor inline digital holography in imaging concealed objects.
