Abstract

Numerical simulations were used to design a variety of high-Q resonant cavities for integration into a terahertz 2D photonic crystal waveguide. After fabrication, the transmission characteristics of each integrated cavity were explored. These photonic waveguide-coupled cavities demonstrate resonances with linewidths approaching 10GHz. The results compare favorably to previous observations of rectangular waveguide cavities. Good agreement between the experimental results and the numerical simulations was obtained.
