The imaging capability of active imaging with incoherent sub-terahertz (THz) radiation from a photomixer array in a smoky environment was investigated. The photomixer array consisted of nine uni-traveling-carrier photodiode modules, each with an integrated antenna. Incoherent sub-THz waves were generated by a photomixing scheme employing single-mode laser light and optical noise. Imaging tests on a target at a distance of 1.4 m showed that imaging with incoherent sub-THz illumination provides a clear view in heavy smoke for which the visibility was 0.22 m for visible light and 0.44 m for near-infrared light. These results indicate that active imaging with incoherent sub-THz radiation is an effective way to see through smoke.
