An overview of main results concerning THz detection related to plasma nonlinearities in nanometer field effect transistors will be presented. In particular, the physical limits of the responsivity, speed and the dynamic range of these detectors will be discussed. We will also present applications of the FET THz detectors for construction of focal plane arrays and based on them nondestructive quality control and security screening scanners. Finally, some possible future developments will be discussed.
