D5.2 - Graphene and Carbon Nanotube Sensors of THz field

S. E. Shafraniuk
The THz field quantum dot sensors (T-sensors) made of graphene and carbon nanotubes have a very low detecting power, tiny dimensions, and they are tunable dynamically. The sensors simultaneously measure the THz field intensity, polarization, and spectrum. The graphene and carbon nanotube sensors exploit a change in the intrinsic transport properties of the quantum dot under influence of the photon-assisted resonant tunneling.
