Systems, Methods, and Devices for Handling Terahertz Radiation

Many THz systems have very limited portability and mobility due to their large size and sensitivity to vibrations, pressures, and torque loadings. Further, much of the demand for THz technology comes from research, industrial, and military applications where the operator is not expected to have experience in advanced optical systems. For most field applications, especially for defense applications, a mobile, robust, turnkey, miniature, or handheld THz time-domain spectrometer is essential.
