THz Waveguide and Bends Based on Metallic Photonic Crystals
Transmission characteristics of the 2D metallic photonic crystals in air medium are investigated for THz waveguiding. Finite Element Method (FEM) simulations are used for both design and optimization of the structure in order to increase the transmission bandwidth. Bend waveguides are compared and the effect of rods on the corner of bending corner.
