Characterization of the Time Domain Spectroscopy goniometric setup in the THz range is reported. During the construction of the TDS setup many elements need proper adjustment. Additionally, many steering and data processing systems should be optimized. Test phase diffraction grating with a saw blade profile was measured in the setup.
The performance of the TDS system can be optimized on the basis of experimental comparison with theoretical results.
