Speaker: Professor Eddie Jacobs

Title:  Terahertz and sub-millimeter imaging for defense and security  
applications

Abstract:  The detection and identification of concealed weapons and contraband objects on persons is a requirement for many security and defense missions. In order to minimize the risk to security personnel and to allow rapid scanning of people in crowds, stand-off terahertz and sub-millimeter wave imaging devices are being developed. This talk will give a brief overview of the benefits of using terahertz or sub-millimeter wave imaging, the physics involved, and existing and emerging imaging technologies in this region of the electromagnetic spectrum.
