The advances involving imaging with sub-picosecond terahertz (THz) pulses opened up possibilities in the applications of far-infrared technology. One of the characteristics of THz-TDS is the extremely short duration of the THz pulses. Because many materials have strong absorption or dispersion features in the far infrared, the temporal distortions which are imposed on the sub-picosecond pulses are characteristics of the materials with which the radiation has interacted. As a consequence, the distortions of the time domain THz waveform can be used to identify or characterize the materials.
