We propose terahertz (THz) photomixers based on double graphene layer (DGL) structures, utilizing the interband absorption of modulated optical radiation, tunneling or thermionic inter-GL transitions, and resonant excitation of plasma oscillations. Using the developed device model, we substantiate the operation of the photomixers and calculate their characteristics. We demonstrate that the output frequency-dependent power of THz radiation exhibits pronounced resonant peaks at the plasmonic resonant frequencies. The proposed THz photomixer can surpass the pertinent devices based on the standard heterostructures.
