Paper Abstract

We formulate and justify several proposals utilizing the unique electronic properties of different types of carbon nanotubes in a broad range of applications to THz optoelectronics, including THz generation by hot electrons in quasi-metallic nanotubes, frequency multiplication in chiral-nanotube-based superlattices controlled by a transverse electric field, and THz radiation detection by armchair nanotubes in strong magnetic fields.
