A near-field probe is described that enables high spatial resolution imaging with terahertz (THz) pulses. The spatial resolution capabilities of the system lie in the range of few microns and we demonstrate a resolution of 7 μm using broad-banded THz pulses with an intensity maximum near 0.5 THz. We present a study of the performance of the near-field probes in the collection mode configuration and discuss some image properties.
