In this paper, we present a Terahertz (THz) Travelling-Wave-Amplifier (TWA) design using a Ballistic Deflection Transistor (BDT). The BDT is an emerging functional device based on InGaAs/InAlAs/InP, which can operate at THz frequencies. A transistor model is proposed, based on data provided by Monte Carlo simulation. We have developed a new nearly lossless… CONTINUE READING
