Abstract

Imaging arrays of direct detectors in the 0.5-5 THz range are being experimentally developed. Terahertz active imaging with amplitude-modulated quantum cascade lasers emitting at 2.5 and 4.4 THz performed by using an antenna-coupled superconducting microbolometer. We then present two room-temperature terahertz detector technologies compatible with monolithic arrays: i) GaAs Schottky diodes with air-bridge sub-micron anodes; ii) high electron mobility transistors with sub-micron Schottky gate. Performances, requirements and fabrication costs of the different detector technologies are compared.
