Optoelectronic techniques for the generation and detection of terahertz waves

D. Saeedkia,     TeTechS Inc., Canada

Abstract:

In this chapter, terahertz source and detector technologies are reviewed. Terahertz signal generation and detection in terahertz photoconductive antennas are studied, and their performances under continuous-wave and pulsed mode operation are compared. Terahertz signal generation in nonlinear crystals by parametric interaction and difference frequency mixing techniques are studied.
