Theoretical investigations and technology developments during last years have created new conceptual approach to design and build a new class of plasma wave electronics detectors of terahertz (THz) wave range. Terahertz radiation corresponds to the frequency bands of molecular and lattice vibrations in gases, fluids, and solids. THz detectors with higher sensitivity is urgently need for important applications. The purpose of the proposal to design, build, and demonstrate new plasma wave electronics THz detectors, which will allow reaching unprecedented levels of sensitivity to terahertz range of electromagnetic radiation. The concept of these THz detectors is based on resonance response to incident electromagnetic radiation at the plasma oscillation frequencies of the two-dimensional electron system. These HEMT based terahertz detectors will be experimentally studied and modeled in detail to be optimized and compared with other type of THz detectors. OPTHUS team has experienced in theoretical study and measurement of terahertz properties of HEMTs, in other THz detectors/sources development to succeed in the proposal aim.
