AbstractIn terahertz reflection imaging, a deconvolution process is often employed to extract the impulse function of the sample of interest. A band-pass filter such as a double Gaussian filter is typically incorporated into the inverse filtering to suppress the noise, but this can result in over-smoothing due to the loss of useful information. In this paper, with a view to improving the calculation of terahertz impulse response functions for systems with a low signal to noise ratio, we propose a hybrid Frequency-Wavelet Domain Deconvolution (FWDD) for terahertz reflection imaging. Our approach works well; it retrieves more accurate impulse response functions than existing approaches and these impulse functions can then also be used to better extract the terahertz spectroscopic properties of the sample.
