In order to improve the detection performance in passive millimeter-wave (PMMW) imaging, a new method forwarding a null in the direction of human body and objects is proposed. The forward-nulling PMMW imaging using a dielectric tube occupied by cooling water placed near the focus line of a parabolic cylinder are performed. It is shown experimentally that the contrast between human body and conducting objects such as a conducting plate and a conducting sphere is improved by the presence of the cooling dielectric tube and parabolic cylinder.
