We experimentally investigate the terahertz energy confinement in finite-width parallel-plate waveguides. Although there is some apparent energy confinement parallel to the plates due to the narrowing of the width, this does not result in actual energy conservation, when the plate separation is as large as 1 cm. However, these findings indicate that by reducing the plate separation, it may be possible to achieve real energy confinement along with energy conservation in these waveguides.
