Development of 3–5 THz harmonic mixer
Paper in proceedings, 2017

There is a high need for >2 THz room temperature direct-detectors/harmonic-mixers to characterize THz optical sources, phase lock THz-QCLs as LO sources for multi-pixel receivers, and realize absolute frequency calibration sources for applications in astrophysics, earth science, and remote sensing. Thus, we have developed a WM-52 (WR-0.22) harmonic mixer for the 3–5 THz operation. The design, fabrication and assembly of the THz mixer are discussed.
