The chapter begins with a brief introduction of the typical experimental set-up used for terahertz time-domain spectroscopy and imaging measurements. It then describes ways of sample preparation and data analysis, before discussing a few case studies of terahertz applications in the context of pharmaceutical industry and science.
The terahertz (THz) region of the electromagnetic spectrum spans the frequency range between the mid-infrared (mid-IR) and the millimetre/microwave. The centre portion of the THz region ...
