Millimetre-wave and Terahertz Imaging Systems with Medical Applications

The properties of terahertz (THz) radiation make it ideal for medical imaging but the difficulty of producing laboratory sources and detectors has meant that it is the last unexplored part of the electromagnetic spectrum. In this paper we report on near-field reflection and absorption measurements of biological and non-biological samples at 0.1THz with a view to developing THz and millimetre-wave imaging schemes. In particular we have investigated the effects of standing waves on such systems and the sensitivity to water content of the sample as a means to extract medically useful information.
