Abstract-Broadband terahertz transmission within the symmetrical plastic film coated parallel-plate waveguide
Applied Optics, Vol. 53, Issue 26, pp. 6008-6012 (2014)
We report on the broadband terahertz (THz) transmission within a symmetrical plastic film coated parallel-plate waveguide. We theoretically study the antiresonant reflecting mechanism of the waveguide, and we find that the broadband THz wave can transmit in this waveguide with ultralow loss. The loss of the TM mode in this waveguide can be 4 orders of magnitude lower than the uncoated parallel-plate waveguide. The transmission bandwidth of this waveguide is up to 5.12 THz. We further show the mode field distributions which explain the loss mechanism.
