Symmetric hybrid surface plasmon polariton waveguides for 3D photonic integration.

It is shown that, under optimized configurations, the transmission loss can be reduced significantly with little change in the mode confinement capability compared to similar dielectric-loaded surface plasmon polariton waveguides.

Achieving subwavelength field confinement in sub-terahertz regime by periodic metallo-dielectric waveguides.

A periodic metallo-dielectric structure that supports geometry-induced surface plasmons in the sub-terahertz regime and a customized subwavelength-sized dielectric coating based on high-resistivity silicon (HR-Si) can further improve the confinement.

Terahertz dielectric waveguides

Several classes of non-planar metallic and dielectric waveguides have been proposed in the literature for guidance of terahertz (THz) or T-ray radiation. In this review, we focus on the development

Terahertz plasmonic waveguide based on metal rod arrays for nanofilm sensing.

Analysis of the refractive index and thickness of molecular membranes indicates that the metallic rod array-based THz waveguide can integrate various biochip platforms for minute molecular detection, which is extremely less than the coherent length of THz waves.

Investigation of spectral properties and lateral confinement of THz waves on a metal-rod-array-based photonic crystal waveguide.

Terahertz (THz) waves laterally confined in a 1 mm-thick microstructured planar waveguide are demonstrated on a free-standing metal rod array (MRA), and one apparent rejection band of a transmission

Tunable hybridization of graphene plasmons and dielectric modes for highly confined light transmit at terahertz wavelength.

In comprehensive numerical simulations on guiding properties of the GHPW, it was found that the size of hybrid plasmonic mode can be reduced significantly to ~10-4(λ2/4), in conjunction with long propagation distances up to tens of micrometers by tuning the the waveguide's key structure parameters and graphene's chemical potential.

In this review we evaluate recent experimental and theoretical progress in the development of wire-based waveguides used for practical low-loss and low-dispersion delivery of terahertz radiation.

Metal wires for terahertz wave guiding

It is shown how a simple waveguide, namely a bare metal wire, can be used to transport terahertz pulses with virtually no dispersion, low attenuation, and with remarkable structural simplicity.

Geometry-dependent modal field properties of metal-rod-array-based terahertz waveguides

One terahertz (THz) waveguide based on the metal rod array (MRA) structure is numerically demonstrated in 0.1–1 THz, including the fundamental and high-order transverse magnetic (TM) modes. The

Wedge hybrid plasmonic THz waveguide with long propagation length and ultra-small deep-subwavelength mode area

The simulated results of propagation length and normalized mode area show that the proposed wedge hybrid plasmonic THz waveguide is tolerant to practical fabrication errors in geometry parameters such as misalignment in the horizontal direction, variation of wedge tip angle, and variation ofedge tip curvature radius.
