In this letter, low noise amplification at 0.67 THz is demonstrated for the first time. A packaged InP High Electron Mobility Transistor (HEMT) amplifier is reported to achieve a noise figure of 13 dB with an associated gain greater than 7 dB at 670 GHz using a high fMAX InP HEMT transistors in a 5 stage coplanar waveguide integrated circuit. A 10-stage version is also reported to reach a peak gain of 30 dB. These results indicate that InP HEMT integrated circuits can be useful at frequencies approaching a terahertz.
