We discuss possibility of rectifying infrared radiation using metal-insulator-metal tunneling nanodiodes, engineered as hyperbolic-metamaterials (HMMs). We demonstrate that responsivity of HMM-based devices can reach tens of mA/W in mid-infrared region, which may find interesting applications in photodetection and energy harvesting.
