Abstract

Although subwavelength planar terahertz (THz) plasmonic devices can be implemented based on planar spoof surface plasmons (SPs), they still suffer from a little high propagation loss. Here the dispersion and propagation characteristics of the spoof plasmonic waveguide composed of double metal strips corrugated with dumbbell shaped grooves have been investigated. It has been found that much lower propagation loss and longer propagation length can be achieved based on the waveguide compared with the conventional spoof plasmonic waveguide with rectangular grooves. Moreover, the waveguide can implement a decrease in size of about 22%. An ultra-wideband THz plasmonic filter for planar circuits has been demonstrated based on the proposed waveguide. The experimental verification at the microwave frequency has been conducted by scaling up the geometry size of the filter.
