    Abstract

    Research was carried out whether it is possible to detect water trees in a low density polyethylene sheet by terahertz light. The attenuation of the reflected intensity of THz light was observed on several points in the sample under a polyvinylchloride sheet. The intensity distribution of the reflected light agrees with the distribution of water trees in the sample. Therefore, the distribution of water trees would be detectable even if the trees are invisible to naked eyes.
