Terahertz plasma wave detectors and emitters utilizing the high-density 2-D electrons in submicron AlGaInN/GaN-based Quantum Well Heterostructure Field Effect Transistors (QW-HFETs) with high sensitivity levels for the sensing of terahertz (THz) frequencyelectromagnetic radiation are proposed The novel plasma wave terahertz detectors will find applications in biological and chemical hazard detection. Other applications include high bandwidth data transmission, compact radar ranges, and radioastronomy.
