In this paper we report the progress on a video-rate THz camera demonstrator which utilizes broadband antenna-coupled microbolometers as detectors, operated within a turn-key commercial closed-cycle cryocooler.
A full system has been integrated consisting of 64 parallel sensors and readout electronics, and reflective Schmidt camera optics incorporating a conical scanner for real time imaging.
At present, the system provides near real time submillimetre-wave video imagery at 6 frames per second.
