I'm a final semester grad student working on a tunable THz detector based on a self-assembled plasmonic structure using GaAs 2DEG. My specialty is the Nanosphere Lithography which allows us to obtain a large area 2D plasmonic structure with submicron features. Now we then improve detector sensitivity, tunability and remove polarization dependence through it.!!!
