Abstract

We calculate theoretically the coupling of a terahertz wave from a dipole into a two-wire waveguide. The field transmission and reflection are obtained using a Single Mode Matching (SMM) technique at the input port of the two-wire waveguide. The results show more than 70 percent coupling efficiency for the waveguide using 500 μm radii wires with 2mm center-to-center separation and the exciting field cross section of 1mm × 1mm. The results also show good agreement with the full-wave numerical simulations using the Finite Element Method (FEM).
