In the present article, silver cone antenna and its arrays are designed according to the requirement of wide bandwidth terahertz irradiation property. Coordinate transformation method is employed to analyze the solution process of the integrate equation of the irradiated electromagnetic field. And CST microwave studio software is employed to simulate the terahertz irradiation properties of Ag cone antenna arrays. Theoretical analysis and simulation results both manifest that the single Ag cone antenna with micrometer scale size can irradiate a wide bandwidth THz wave with the gain of 22.7dBi, while its corresponding antenna arrays with proper configuration can further improve the radiation pattern and enhance the gain to 42.5dBi. The theoretical analysis and CST simulation results will be useful for the guidance of experimental investigation of terahertz irradiation sources.
