Abstract

The usage of terahertz infrared thermography for assessing the humidity of wooden samples is described. Terahertz radiation transmitted through a sample is imaged by means of a tera-thermoconverter. The temperature field of the converter is analyzed with an infrared imager. The possibility of using the technique for testing the nonuniformity of drying of timber is illustrated.
