We compared terahertz transmission spectra of explosives measured by means of Time Domain Spectroscopy (TDS) and an Optical Parametric Oscillator-based system (OPO). Reflection spectra of pure explosives were measured in reflection configuration by means of TDS in the range 0.3–2.5THz. We also analyzed influence of the surface roughness on reflectance and phase spectra of RDX plastic based explosives. Next, we present a thermal phantom of human body working in THz range, which was developed for testing of THz cameras. We demonstrate the possibility of improvement of the quality of the image captured by a commercially available passive THz camera.
