Abstract:

We confirmed that polarization modulation is a viable technique for high repetition radar, particularly pulsed terahertz radar, through the use of a scaled experiment. We believe that our pulsing hardware, combined with a focusing dish, would prove a powerful standoff imaging solution. Though we encountered multiple fabrication issues that delayed the completion of a prototype system, we hope to have a working prototype by the second quarter of 2012.
