Paper Abstract

Recently a significant advancement in THz source and detector technology have arisen a number of potential application such as space-based communication, THz sensing and imaging for military and security, biology and so on. However, THz spectroscopic techniques uses mainly free space propagation and guided wave still remains a challenge in this intermediate spectral region. In this paper, a square lattice microstructure terahertz waveguide is proposed. Combining super-lattice full-vector method with beam propagation method, its optical properties, especially dispersion, confinement loss and single mode property, are analyzed. Numerical results demonstrate that this waveguide can operate at single mode with low dispersion and low confinement loss.
