Abstract

In this study, we investigate the directivity of the terahertz (THz) radiation pattern from a newly designed two-dimensional rampart slot array antenna integrated in an edge-coupled membrane photonic transmitter. The antenna design is based on the array theory which is well-developed in the microwave regime. By means of the array arrangement of rampart slot antennas, we demonstrate that the 3-dB beam width of the THz radiation pattern at 907 GHz is successfully confined within 30° in both H and E planes.
