Silicon Photonics for Coherent Terahertz Generation and Detection

Freude, W.; Harter, T.; Muehlbrandt, S.; Ummethala, S.; Nellen, S.; Hahn, L.; Randel, S.; Koos, C.

Silicon-plasmonic internal photoemission devices can act as photomixers for generating terahertz frequency carriers (T-waves) for transmitters (Tx), or they function as receivers (Rx) for coherently downconverting Twave signals to the baseband. In a first demonstration, we monolithically integrate a Tx and a Rx on a silicon chip and operate them in a carrier frequency range up to 1THz . With a co-integrated transmission line both components can be connected.
