Continuous-wave terahertz (THz) radiation was generated by photomixing two modes of a titanium sapphire laser. The laser was induced to oscillate on two modes by placing a Fabry–Perot etalon in the laser resonator. The frequency of terahertz radiation, which was equal to the difference frequency of the two modes, was varied by adjusting the free spectral range (FSR) of the etalon. Photomixing was performed by logarithmic spiral antennas fabricated on low-temperature-grown GaAs; and the emitted THz radiation was characterized. The THz power, measured by a Golay cell, was 1 μW at 0.3 THz and 0.7 μW at 0.5 THz. The THz frequency, as determined by a Fourier transform interferometer, was seen to correspond to the etalon FSR. The current-voltage characteristics of photomixers were also determined, and photocurrent modulation was observed by the autocorrelation of the laser beam.
