Abstract:
More efficient continuous-wave photonic near-infrared mixers as terahertz sources are investigated with the motivation to develop a universal photonic local oscillator for astronomical submillimeter/terahertz receiver systems. For this, our group has developed new concepts for vertically illuminated traveling-wave (TW) photomixers. The new device called TWUni-Travelling Carrier photodiodes (TW-UTC PD) was simulated, modeled and shall be optical/terahertz tested at the Electrical Engineering Department of the University of Chile, whereas device fabrication is performed at the MC2 cleanroom facility at Chalmers University of technology. We are reporting on first progresses in this direction.
