Title:
High-Speed Antenna-Coupled Terahertz Thermocouple Detectors and Mixers 
Abstract:
An antenna-coupled nanothermocouple (ACNTC) is an integrated structure consisting of a dipole nanoantenna and a nanothermocouple (NTC). ACNTCs are excellently suited as polarization-sensitive detectors and mixers for the long-wavelength far-infrared range around 30 THz. Radiation collected by the integrated nanoantenna and fed into the hot junction creates a temperature difference between the hot and cold junctions of the thermocouple, which results in open-circuit voltage due to the Seebeck eff...    »
