J. Axel Zeitler, Yao-Chun Shen
2012 Terahertz Spectroscopy and Imaging  
This chapter gives a concise overview of potential industrial applications for terahertz imaging that have been reported over the last decade with a discussion of the major advantages and limitations of each approach. In the second half of the chapter we discuss in more detail how terahertz imaging can be used to investigate the microstructure of pharmaceutical dosage forms. A particular focus in this context is the nondestructive measurement of the coating thickness of polymer coated tablets,
