Non-destructive density measurements of pharmaceutical products by THz imaging
Paper in proceedings, 2016

In this paper, measurements with a THz imaging system at 346 GHz together with electromagnetic simulations have demonstrated the capability of THz sensing for the non-destructive density determination of intermediate products in the pharmaceutical industry. The results confirm the ability of THz imaging to detect density changes in pharmaceutical samples by measuring the phase variation of the wave transmitted through the sample.
