UTC-PD Photomixer Module

product imageUTC-PD (uni-traveling-carrier photodiode) photomixers are ideal to generate CW THz radiation, making the best use of the telecom-based technology (1550 nm). Two-types of UTC-PD photomixer modules are available: a waveguide-coupled module suitable for THz communication experiments, and an antenna-integrated module which can be used as radiation source for THz spectroscopy and imaging.


  • Efficient CW THz generation
  • Waveguide coupled photomixer
    W-, F-, D- and J-band available
  • Antenna integrated photomixer
    0.2 ~ 1.8THz with a bow-tie or a log-periodic antenna

*) W-type is a waveguide coupled type photomixer. Output power is measured at the centre frequency.
A-type is an antenna-integrated photomixer. Output power is defined as the maximum power.
