    We report optical mixing with difference frequencies to 211 GHz in 50 nm gate pseudomorphic InP-based high electron mobility transistors (HEMTs). To our knowledge, this is the highest frequency optical mixing signal obtained in three terminal devices. To detect the signals at these frequencies,...
