THz emitters and detectors

THz emitters and detectors


These components consist of a microstrip photoconductive antenna on LT-GaAs or GaBiAs substrate. Antenna structures are optimized for best combination of output efficiency and bandwidth. Different models for pumping at 800nm as well as at 1060nm are available. Configuration includes Si focusing lens with x-y-micrometer adjustments and SMA connector for bias voltage and lock-in amplifier input.

THz emitter and THz detector consists of a microstrip photoconductive antenna (PCA) fabricated on GaAs substrate. Depending on pump laser wavelength either low temperature grown GaAs (LT-GaAs) or GaBiAs is used as photoconductor. On its surface a coplanar Hertzian type dipole antenna structure is formed using AuGeNi metallization. Photoconductive antenna geometry, as well as the properties of photoconductor epitaxial layers are optimized for highest THz radiation output efficiency, while preserving optimal bandwidth. As a result, typical emitted THz radiation power exceeds 10 μW, when pumped by laser with 30 mW output power and 150 fs pulse duration. FWHM bandwidth of detection system exceeds 700 GHz with usable spectral range of 0.1–4 THz. THz emitter or detector is illuminated by laser beam from panel side. Laser beams must be focused between two electrodes (Fig. 1).

The gap between metallic contacts is similar to laser spot diameter in detector case and larger – in emitter case. THz radiation is collected by integrated lens, manufactured from high-density silicon, mounted on X-Y stage. EKSPLA offers two standard types of these lenses: for collimated or diverging THz beam output. In second case PCA is placed in aplanatic point of silicon lens, which reduces THz beam aberrations. Adjustment screws are used for Si lens positioning onto PCA center. SMA sockets on back side of the housing are used for connecting DC or AC bias to THz emitter and lock-in amplifier input to THz detector. Any of three M6 holes can be used for THz emitter mounting on optical table.
