A system of two probes is designed for terahertz (THz) time-domain spectroscopy of sub-wavelength size objects. A twin-needle probe confines broadband THz pulses spatially by means of surface plasmon waves to a sub-wavelength spot smaller than 10 microns. The confined pulses are detected within the near-field zone of the twin-needle probe by a sub-wavelength aperture probe. The system allows THz spectroscopy to be applied to single micrometer-size objects in the 1-2.5THz region.
