Semiconductor-based broadband room-temperature Terahertz (THz) detectors are well suitable for beam diagnosis and alignment at accelerator facilities due to easy handling, compact size, no requirement of cooling, direct detection and robustness. Zero-Bias Schottky Diode (ZBSD) based THz detectors are highly sensitive and extremely fast, enabling the detection of picosecond scale THz pulses. This contribution gives an overview of direct THz detector technologies and applications. The ZBSD detector developed by our group has undergone several tests with table-top THz sources and also characterized with the free-electron laser (FEL) at HZDR Dresden, Germany up to 5.56 THz. In order to understand the rectification mechanism at higher THz frequencies, detector modelling and optimization is essential for a given application. We show parametric analysis of a antenna-coupled ZBSD detector by using 3D electromagnetic field simulation software (CST). The results will be used for optimization and fabrication of next generation ZBSD detectors, which are planned to be commissioned at THz generating FEL accelerator facilities in near future.
