Three dimensional (3D) terahertz (THz) imaging or THz tomography has recently proven to be useful for non-destructive testing of industrial materials and structures. In place of previous imaging techniques such as THz pulse or continuous wave (CW) radar, we propose a THz optical coherence tomography (OCT) using frequency-swept THz sources, and demonstrate 3D imaging. In addition, we further apply this technique to the millimeter-wave region in order to extend applicable targets.
