  • Patent number: 10495748
    Abstract: There are provided a security inspection system comprising ultra-wideband transmitters (104) and receivers (103) and a method of security inspection. The method comprises scanning a walk-through inspection space (200) along with an inspected person passing there through to yield collected data informative of scattered signals in association with respective channels, wherein the ultra-wideband transmitters and receivers are arranged at both sides of the inspection space. The method further comprises dividing the inspection space into a plurality of subspaces such that each voxel in the inspection space belongs to one and only one subspace, providing image reconstruction separately for each subspace of the plurality of the subspaces, wherein image reconstruction for voxels residing in a given subspace is provided using collected data corresponding to a set of channels selected for the given subspace in accordance with predefined rules; and using image reconstruction results to detect a concealed object.

  • Patent number: 8558745
    Abstract: An antenna arrangement for generating and receiving terahertz radiation is described. The arrangement comprises a substrate comprising a photoconductive material and a pair of electrodes provided on the photoconductive material. Each electrode includes a plurality of elongate fingers spaced apart from each other which are arranged in a parallel relation and define finger gaps therebetween. The fingers of one electrode are located within the finger gaps formed between the spaced apart fingers of another electrode so that two neighboring fingers belong to different electrodes. The fingers of each electrode have at least one protrusion extending away from lateral sides of the fingers within the finger gap.

  • Patent number: 8450691
    Abstract: A high frequency radiation transceiver is presented. The transceiver includes an electrodes' arrangement, including two or more electrodes, where two of said electrodes are accommodated in a spaced-apart relationship defining a cavity for free space propagation of electrons between them. One of said two electrodes is configured to be responsive to an external input optical signal to emit an electron flux towards the other electrode. Said two or more electrodes are configured to define first and second electrode portions, the first portion having at least a region thereof exposed to said electron flux and operable as an antenna feeding port causing an electric current in said second portion and the second portion being configured and operable as an antenna radiating portion.
