Abstract
We propose integrated waveguides for terahertz (THz) and mid-infrared (MIR) applications on wafer platform. Based on the prototype of spoof plasmonic waveguides consisting of textured metallic surface, we explore the possibility of coating periodic metallic pattern with silicon (at 0.6 THz) or germanium (at MIR region of 30 THz) to further shrink the relative mode size of propagation spoof plasmonic waves. Numerical modeling via 3D finite-difference time-domain (FDTD) has shown deep sub-wavelength mode confinement in transverse directions to smaller than λ/50 by λ/50, with an estimated propagation loss of less than 0.1 dB for each repetitive unit.
