We report on the low-temperature detection of free-space radiation at 1.5 THz using a unipolar nanodiode, known as the self-switching diode (SSD), coupled with a spiral microantenna. The SSD, based on an asymmetric nanochannel, has a diode-like characteristic that can be utilized in rectifying high-frequency electrical signals. The truly planar structure of… CONTINUE READING
