A proof of concept for high speed near-field imaging with sub-wavelength resolution using SLM is presented. An 8 channel THz detector array antenna with an electrode gap of 100 um and length of 5 mm is fabricated using the commercially available GaAs semiconductor substrate. Each array antenna can be excited simultaneously by spatially reconfiguring the optical probe beam and the THz electric field can be recorded using 8 channel lock-in amplifiers. By scanning the probe beam along the length of the array antenna, a 2D image can be obtained with amplitude, phase and frequency information.
