  • With the maturation of terahertz (THz) imaging technology, the spatial resolution, signal-to-noise ratio, imaging speed and ability acquiring information of the imaging system are gradually enhanced. Researchers have paid more attention to THz imaging applications in fundamental researches and industrial exploitation. In this paper, several recent studies of THz digital holography are reviewed, including performance demonstration of THz planar elements, function validation of optical tunable THz elements, observation of the longitudinal component in diffraction THz fields and analysis of THz surface waves on the metallic sub-wavelength devices. These research works are very valuable for the development of THz integration systems and THz imaging technology.
