Terahertz (THz) photoconductive antennas are the most common devices for the generation and detection of THz waves. One of the main problems of the current photoconductive antennas as the emitter is that the optical-THz conversion efficiency is very low, thus it is difficult to obtain high power THz radiation. Impedance mismatching between the antenna and the photoconductive material (which acts as the source impedance) is one of the primary factors on this low conversion efficiency. In order… CONTINUE READING
