Fresnel lens tomographic imaging

This invention is directed to a system and method to create three dimensional tomography using a Fresnel lens with broadband terahertz (THz) pulses.The procedure allows reconstruction of an objects tomographic contrast image by assembling the frequency-dependent images.Objects at various locations along the beam propagation path are uniquely imaged on the same imaging plane using a Fresnel lens with different frequencies of the imaging beam.

T-Ray Computed Tomography

This invention is directed to techniques for obtaining and imaging three-dimensional objects using radiation in the terahertz (THz) spectrum and systems and associated methods for high resolution terahertz computed tomography. Although computed tomography is well known in X-ray radiographic imaging, a serious problem in reconstructing an image using THz computed tomography is that the THz wave does not satisfy the short wave limit as the X-ray satisfies in X-ray computed tomography.
