Studying the conversion of terahertz radiation into electric current is of great interest for finding new ways of using the energies of solar and thermal radiation, designing new IR detectors, and other purposes. The processes that occur during the rectification of terahertz signals can be considered within the theory of tunneling stimulated by photons.
