Abstract

We have applied techniques developed for IR waveguides to fabricate Ag/polystyrene (PS) -coated hollow glass waveguides (HGWs) for transmission of terahertz radiation. A loss of 0.95dBm at 119μm (2.5THz) was obtained for a 2mm bore, 90cm long Ag/PS HGW. We found that TE modes are supported in HGWs with thin PS films, while hybrid (HE) modes dominate when PS film thickness increases. The lowest losses are obtained for the thicker PS films and the propagation of the HE modes.
