System configuration

Block scheme of a typical terahertz time-domain measurement system for near-field transmission measurements.

Breaking the resolution limits of standard THz imaging systems and opening the door to direct THz-based microstructure analysis:

The patent-protected TeraSpike microprobe series offered by Protemics enables the surface-near detection of THz light with micron-resolution. This covers applications ranging from contactless sheet resistance measurement or time-domain reflectometry for fault isolation in chip-packages to THz near-field imaging at planar THz devices, metamaterials or waveguides. Thanks to the low optical power requirements of the TeraSpike microprobes (typ. <4 mW average power) they are compatible to most pulsed laser sources (pulse durations < 150 fs recommended).
