We present results on optimized growth temperatures and layer structure design of high mobility photoconductive Terahertz (THz) emitters based on molecular beam epitaxy grown In0.53Ga0.47As/In0.52Al0.48As multilayer heterostructures (MLHS). The photoconductive antennas made of these MLHS are evaluated as THz emitters in a THz time domain spectrometer and with a Golay cell. We measured a THz bandwidth in excess of 4 THz and average THz powers of up to 64 mu W corresponding to an optical power-to-THz power conversion efficiency of up to 2 x 10(-3).
