Abstract-Numerical simulation of high impedance T-match antennas for terahertz photomixers
Lars Juul; Martin Mikulics; Michel Marso; Mauro F. Pereira
This paper summarizes an efficient numerical method to design terahertz photomixers. The method is illustrated by comparisons with designs in the literature. Next we deliver complementary results to the study of two recently introduced photomixer designs based on the high impedance T-match antenna. The estimated output power of the improved design is 9.0μW, which is an improvement of three times over reference photomixers .
