Summary:The inherent advantages and potential payoffs of the terahertz (THz) regime for military and security applications serve as an important driver for interest in new THz-related science and technology. In particular, the very rapid growth in more recent years is arguably most closely linked to the potential payoffs of THz sensing and imaging (THz-S & I). This book presents some of the leading fundamental research efforts towards the realization of practical THz-S & I capabilities for military and security applications. Relevant subjects include theoretical prediction and/or measurement of THz spectr.
