Abstract

We demonstrate tomographic T-ray imaging, using the timing information present in terahertz (THz) pulses in a reflection geometry. THz pulses are reflected from refractive-index discontinuities inside an object, and the time delays of these pulses are used to determine the positions of the discontinuities along the propagation direction. In this fashion a tomographic image can be constructed.
