Abstract: We describe a new imaging method using single-cycle pulses of terahertz (THz) radiation. This technique emulates the data collection and image processing procedures developed for geophysical prospecting and is made possible by the availability of fiber-coupled THz receiver antennas. We use a migration procedure to solve the inverse problem; this permits us to reconstruct the location, the shape, and the refractive index of targets. We show examples for both metallic and dielectric model targets, and we perform velocity analysis on dielectric targets to estimate the refractive indices of imaged components. These results broaden the capabilities of THz imaging systems and also demonstrate the viability of the THz system as a test bed for the exploration of new seismic processing methods.
