Practical supra-terahertz (1–5 THz) heterodyne radiometry systems require compact local oscillator and mixer components, which are suitable for robust waveguide integration. We demonstrate detection of radiation emitted by quantum cascade lasers at frequencies between 2.2 and 3.5 THz using room-temperature quasi-optically mounted planar Schottky diodes. These diodes are more readily integrated into waveguides than point-contact diodes, do not require the cryogenic environment of hot-electron bolometers and offer potentially better noise performance than superlattice devices.
