1. A system for generating terahertz signals, comprising:
a pump source;
a two-wire waveguide; and
at least one terahertz source;
wherein said terahertz source is embedded within the two-wire waveguide and said pump source is configured to illuminate said terahertz source, said terahertz source generating terahertz signals directly within the two-wire waveguide.
