We present single sampling point detection of the amplitude and phase of frequency modulated continuous wave terahertz radiation. Employing a conventional photomixing setup with a precise wavelength control allows for rapid scan rates in the kHz regime. Two application examples demonstrate the potential of this approach for real time monitoring of samples' thicknesses and transmittances.
