Low-Loss Guiding Structures for THz Frequency Applications

Authors:
A.G. Engel, Jr., T.E. van Deventer, Linda P.B. Katehi
Abstract:
The design and construction of low-loss monolithic transmission lines are critical to systems which require that THz-power be guided to the antenna front-end. This paper proposes two types of novel monolithic guiding structures, which are designed for the 0.4-2.0 THz and 0.1-0.4 THz ranges, respectively. Propagation in each of the waveguides is characterized by applying a mode-matching technique, and the structures are predicted to exhibit excellent power confinement and low losses. A modified integral equation method for the efficient and accurate analysis of three-dimensional structures such as power dividers, bends and stubs is also presented.
