3D-printed polymer antiresonant waveguides for short-reach terahertz applications

3D-printed polymer antiresonant waveguides for short-reach terahertz applications

In this work, we present a 3D-printed waveguide that provides effective electromagnetic guidance in the THz regime. The waveguide is printed using low-cost polycarbonate and a conventional fused deposition modeling printer. Light guidance in the hollow core is achieved through antiresonance, and it improves the energy effectively transported to the receiver compared to free space propagation. Our demonstration adds to the field of 3D-printed terahertz components, providing a low-cost way of guiding terahertz radiation.

Abstract

In this work, we present a 3D-printed waveguide that provides effective electromagnetic guidance in the THz regime. The waveguide is printed using low-cost polycarbonate and a conventional fused deposition modeling printer. Light guidance in the hollow core is achieved through antiresonance, and it improves the energy effectively transported to the receiver compared to free space propagation. Our demonstration adds to the field of 3D-printed terahertz components, providing a low-cost way of guiding terahertz radiation.
