With advances in technology, terahertz imaging and spectroscopy are beginning to move out of the laboratory and find applications in areas as diverse as security screening, medicine, art conservation and field archaeology. Nevertheless, there is still a need to improve upon the performance of existing terahertz systems to achieve greater compactness and robustness, enhanced spatial resolution, more rapid data acquisition times and operation at greater standoff distances. This chapter will review recent technological developments in this direction that make use of nanostructures in the generation, detection and manipulation of terahertz radiation. The chapter will also explain how terahertz spectroscopy can be used as a tool to characterize the ultrafast carrier dynamics of nanomaterials.
