Researchers use Terahertz Imaging to Read Through Closed Books

A group of researchers from MIT have discovered a new method for reading through the pages of a closed book. Using terahertz (THz) imaging and a number of complex and carefully developed complex algorithms - judging a book by its cover is now possible.
