We present an approach to realize wideband and low-loss antennas and antenna arrays on chip. The radiators are loaded with an artificial dielectric superstrate to improve the bandwidth and the overall efficiency. An example of design is proposed, consisting of an array of connected-dipole elements operating in a frequency band around 300 GHz. The antenna elements are located in the close proximity of a metal plane that functions as a shield from the lossy silicon substrate. Although the… CONTINUE READING
