Low-loss single-mode terahertz waveguiding using Cytop

A polymer-based, Cytop planar photonic crystal waveguide (PPCW) was designed for guiding terahertz radiation. Results indicate that the propagation and coupling losses in the 0.2-1.1 THz range are relatively small for a sheetlike thickness design. Spectral analysis of the transmission data reveals frequency selectivity of the PPCW. Calculations of the spatial distribution of the terahertz electric field through the waveguide show evidence of single-mode propagation at a 0.45 THz central frequency. The highly transparent nature of Cytop from deep ultraviolet to the far infrared region indicates its potential use as an integral component in hybrid optics. © 2006 American Institute of Physics.
