The scientists have combined a few highly advanced techniques to achieve that goal. They are a spatial resolution, spectral contrast, and occlusion.

We empower the time-of-flight capabilities of conventional THz time domain spectroscopy and combine it with its spectral capabilities to computationally overcome these bottlenecks.
