Paper Abstract

Low-dimensional transit-time structures for terahertz generation and detection are discussed. The negative conductivity at terahertz frequencies is crucial for generation. It may arise in an array of silicon nanowires (1D), as well as in a thin silicon layer (2D) in “silicon-on-insulator” wafer. Ballistic regime, scattering regime and alternating barrier injection regime (BARITT) are simulated. The latter allows a negative conductivity even for rather strong scattering.
