Terahertz time-domain spectral techniques are applied to the characterization of a He discharge plasma. Electro-optically sampling of the electric field of a quasi-unipolar terahertz pulse transmitted through the plasma has allowed both the real and imaginary parts of the plasma permittivity to be simultaneously measured over a large spectral range. The plasma density and the collisional frequency are determined within a 30 ps duration measurement window. An anomalously high collisional frequency has been measured.
