Abstract

The effect of using graphene as 2D nanoelectrode for continuous wave (CW) terahertz (THz) photomixers were investigated. The multilayer graphene (6-8 and 3-5 MLG) sheets were used as six-finger interdigital nanoelectrodes on a low-temperature-grown (LTG) GaAs photoconductor. The MLG nanoelectrode shows unique properties with high short-circuit current capabilities and reliable high photocurrents. The number of graphene layers play a big role on the electrical and the optical properties of graphene nanoelectrode. In one hand, a thinner graphene increases the transparency of the nanoelectrodes to improve the power conversion efficiency, and on the other hand, a thicker graphene is required to carry high current densities and enhance the photomixer performance.
