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.
Technology advancement in photonics, electronics and communications has entered a new realm: the Tera Era ...
