Abstract

Development of a very compact terahertz time domain spectroscopy (THz-TDS) imaging system with diffraction-limited spatial resolution is presented. The size of our device made of a cupper rod is 20 mm diameter times 61 mm length. Four parabolic-shaped concave mirrors dug in the rod effectively focus a THz beam on a sample, achieving ∼0.45 effective numerical aperture.
