We report on terahertz radiation detection with InGaAs/InAlAs field effect transistors in quantizing magnetic field. The photovoltaic detection signal was investigated as a function of the gate voltage and magnetic field. Oscillations analogous to Shubnikov-de Haas oscillations as well as their strong enhancement at the cyclotron resonance were observed. The results are quantitatively described by a recent theory, showing that the detection is due to rectification of the terahertz radiation by plasma waves related nonlinearities in the gated part of the channel.
