The geometric structure and the terahertz/infrared radiation characteristics of carbon nanotubes dipole antenna arrays have been investigated by CST MICROWAVE STUDIO based on finite integral methods. In terahertz and infrared frequency span, the antenna properties such as electrical field distributions, scattering parameters, standing wave ratio, gain, and two dimension directivity patterns are discussed. Our results show that N × N antenna arrays have higher radiation efficiency than single carbon nanotube dipole antenna.
