CMOS sub-THz on-chip communication with SRR modulator and SPP interconnect

Two novel metamaterial devices including Split Ring Resonator (SRR) modulator and Surface Plasmon Polariton (SPP) interconnect (including SPP T-line and coupler) are proposed with CMOS on-chip integration operated at 140GHz. By introducing sub-wavelength periodical corrugation structure onto T-line, SPP is established to propagate signals with strongly… (More)
