The authors present their ongoing work on terahertz heterodyne imaging techniques derived from space science applications and components. In Part I, introductory information and general techniques are provided. Part II contains descriptions of four different heterodyne imaging instruments that have been established at the authors’ facilities. In Part III selected applications are discussed. Parts II and III will appear in subsequent issues of this journal.

The authors would like to thank the many past and present members of the Submillimeter Wave Advanced Technology (SWAT team at JPL, who participated in developing, setting up and working with the various heterodyne imaging systems or components that are described in this series of papers. Of particular mention are: Dr. Imran Mehdi, Dr. Anders Skalare, Dr. Frank Maiwald, Dr. Lorene Samoska, Mr. Jolm Oswald, Dr. Hamid Javadi, Dr. Erich Schlecht, Dr. Goutam Chattopadhyay, Dr. John Ward, Dr. John Gill, Dr. Michael Gaidis, Mr. Robert Lin, Mr. David Pukala, Mr. Jim Velebir, Mr. Ray Tsang, and Mr. Ed Luong. Other significant contributors at JPL include: Dr. John Pearson, Dr. Herb Pickett, Dr. Paul Stek and Mr. Peter Bruneau (fabrication). Acknowledgement is also extended to Caltech undergraduate student Tom Tsai for help with our imaging experiments during the summer of 2005. Very special thanks go to Prof. X-C. Zhang of RPI for stimulating our work on the MYNA system that will be described in Part II, during his recent stay at JPL as a Distinguished Visiting Scientist. Finally, we thank Erich Grossman, NIST Boulder, for the preprint and references on his niobium microbridge bolometer work.
