Abstract

We report the first demonstration of a terahertz photomixer made of ion-irradiated In0.53Ga0.47As lattice-matched to InP and fiber-optic coupled with the drive lasers. A continuous-wave radiation is generated at frequencies up to 0.8 THz by photomixing two continuous-wave laser diodes around 1.55 μm. The measured 3dB-down bandwidth of 300 GHz yields a carrier lifetime of 0.53 ps, in agreement with the value of 0.41 ps measured in pump probe experiments. The detected signal is at the most 15 dB lower than the one obtained from similar photomixers fabricated from low-temperature-grown GaAs.

Bolometer output of ion-irradiated-In0.53Ga0.47As and LTG-GaAs photomixers measured versus the frequency difference between the two lasers. Two bias voltages are considered for the first photomixer: 1.2 volts (circles) and 1.7 volts (triangles). The total optical power incident on the photomixer is 30 mW. The LTG-GaAs photomixer (squares) is biased at 5 volts and the optical excitation power is 35 mW.
