Paper Abstract

We review the recent progresses on the developments of a plasmonic terahertz (THz) detector and a millimeter-wave (MMW) photonic double-mixer using InP-based and/or graphene-based field effect transistors (FETs). We experimentally demonstrated the ultra-high internal responsivity of the InP-based high-electron mobility FET (HEMT) detector featured by the asymmetric dual-grating-gate structure and examined the improvement of the external responsivity by the Si-lens integration and by the array configuration. For photonic double-mixing, we experimentally verified the frequency down-conversion of an optical data signal to an IF data signal, and showed the intrinsic doublemixing performance of a G-FET exceeding that of an InP-HEMT. We also address a possibility of photonic doublemixing in the THz frequencies.
