Abstract
Terahertz (THz) detector based on a GaAs/AlGaAs heterostructure was investigated at low temperatures and high magnetic fields. The response of the detector showed a feature caused by a cyclotron resonance that was accompanied by several peaks originated from excitations of magnetoplasmons. Illumination with a visible light (VIS) caused an increase of a plasma concentration and resulted in a change of a magnetoplasmon spectrum. An analysis of spectra allowed to determine changes in the plasmon dispersion with a VIS, which gives a tool to tune the THz response of a plasmonic detector.
