Guided Reflectometry Imaging Unit using Millimeter Wave FMCW Radars

In this paper published in july 2020 in IEEE Transactions on Terahertz Science and Technology, we present a reflectometry sensing system associated with a frequency modulated continuous wave radar. Then, a solid immersion lens is added to the system to improve the resolution. Abstract of terahertz reflectometry setup Frequency Modulated Continuous Wave (FMCW) radar systems…

Guided terahertz pulse reflectometry with double photoconductive antenna

This article presents a terahertz imaging system using a waveguide with a reflection topology. The system is based on a femtosecond pulse laser, a transceiver, and a silica pipe hollow-core waveguide. Silicon lens, beam splitter or coupler is no more required to manipulate the terahertz beam in free space, which makes this system setup more…

Near-field wire-based passive probe antenna for the selective detection of the longitudinal electric field at terahertz frequencies

Coupling and propagation of Sommerfeld waves at 100 and 300 GHz

The coupling between a linearly-polarized gaussian beam and a Sommerfeld wave propagating on a circular metallic wire is obtained owing to a differential phase element inserted in front of the metal wire. At millimeter-wavelengths we calculate a theoretical maximum coupling efficiency of 32% for this system in spite of the metal nature and radius in…
