21 February 2014 Room temperature InGaAs hot electron detector for THz/subTHz regions
Author Affiliations +
A THz/subTHz radiation detector based on MOCVD-grown modulation-doped InxGa1-xAs/InP structure is proposed. Devices have bow-tie metallic antennas to improve the couple efficiency about 5 dB and are fabricated with mesas of 3 μm depth by wet etching. Detection by hot electron effects under external electromagnetic radiation is explained. Measurements performed at electromagnetic wave frequency f=0.0375 THz show the detector having sensitivity about 6 V/W and noise equivalent power (NEP) about 1.6×10-9 W/Hz1/2 at room temperatures.
