Special issue on Terahertz Imaging Systems and Sensors

Published 13 April, 2020

The search of concepts suited for practical implementation in terahertz (THz) detection and imaging continues to be one of the most attractive foci of THz photonics and electronics. The potential of non-ionizing Terahertz radiation (T-Ray) imaging applied for biomedical domain is a new field of research worldwide. This Special Issue of Sensors International, entitled “THz Imaging Systems and Sensors for Medical applications”, will be dedicated to design, research and development of compact THz imaging systems and their applications. Covering topics on compact THz sources, passive diffractive optics components and spectroscopic applications, the Issue will attribute a special attention to design and verification of sensors and their arrays. Both reviews and original research articles are welcome from researchers working in the field.

Terahertz sensing technology has a promise of many breakthroughs, enabling applications including: detection of biological and chemical hazardous agents; cancer detection; medical applications, detection of mines and explosives; enhancement of people, building, and airport security; covert communications (in THz and sub-THz windows); and applications in radioastronomy and space research.

This special issue will review the famous THz gap and latest THz sources, detectors, and sensing systems. Following the THz-senor based papers, one should be able to develop an understanding of: THz sensing of biological materials; broadband THz reflection and transmission detection of concealed objects; THz explosive identification; THz nanocomposite spectroscopy; and THz remote sensing.

Contributions of all types of articles are free of charge and are not levied on authors.
