We aim at a radically new continuous-wave, electrically pumped THz emitter. Compared to existing THz sources, this source will bring together several advantages that are far from being simultaneously available in any existing source today: compactness, roomtemperature operation, output power around 1 μW, custom emission frequency from 1.5 to 6.5 THz, feasibility of multi-spectral array of emitters, and the perspective of coherent detection schemes.
