We present a 144-element terahertz quasi-optical grid frequency doubler. The grid is a planar structure with bow-tie antennas as a unit cell each loaded with a planar Schottky diode. The grid has an output power of 5.5 mW at 1 THz for 3.1-μs, 500-GHz input pulses with a peak power of 36 W. This is the largest recorded output power for a multiplier at terahertz frequencies.
