Abstract

We demonstrate enhanced terahertz detection using photoconductive antennas fabricated on superlattices of self-assembled ErAs nanoislands and GaAs. Low-temperature GaAs and radiation-damaged silicon-on-sapphire based detectors are compared in terms of bandwidth, signal-to-noise ratio, and optical efficiency.
