Abstract:

This report presents and analyzes a solid-state device concept for compact, dc-driven, room-temperature generation of coherent THz radiation. The advent of low-dimensional high-electron-mobility devices HEMT suggests that a micro-scale, solid-state analog of vacuum tube electron-beam microwave sources may be feasible.
