We have developed an algorithm to efficiently eliminate unwanted reflections typically observed in the data obtained by Terahertz time-domain spectroscopic (THz-TDS) methods. The algorithm works by eliminating the reflections from the boundaries. The numerical improvement of the data allows better analysis of the critical parameters obtained by THz-TDS systems.
