This manuscript proposes a high-power terahertz source that consists on a large amount of coherently driven photomixing THz sources. Each element is placed in the gap of a bow tie antenna. The resulting array defines a chessboard-like layout which maximize the density of devices. This novel concept is validated through full-wave simulations. Experimental considerations are also provided for a prototype manufactured for the 1550 nm window. Measured power level will be shown at the conference.
