Closed-Form Expressions for the Radiation Properties of Nanoloops in the Terahertz, Infrared and Optical Regimes

Since the pioneering work of Heinrich Hertz, perfect-electric conductor (PEC) loop antennas for RF applications have been studied extensively. Meanwhile, nanoloops are promising in the optical regime for their applications in a wide range of emerging technologies. Unfortunately, analytical expressions for the radiation properties of conducting loops have… (More)
