Abstract

A photonic jet (a terajet at terahertz frequencies) commonly denotes a specific, spatially localized region in the near field on the front side of a dielectric particle with a diameter comparable with the wavelength illuminated by a plane wave on its back side (i.e., the jet emerges from the shadow surface of a dielectric particle). In this Letter, the formation of a photonic jet is demonstrated using the recently proposed three-dimensional (3D) dielectric cuboids working in the “reflection” mode when the specific, spatially localized region is localized in the direction of the incident wavefront. The results of the simulations based on the Finite Integration Technique are discussed. All dimensions are given in wavelength units so that all results can be scaled to any frequency of interest, including optical frequencies, thus simplifying the fabrication process compared with spherical dielectrics. The results presented here may be of interest for novel applications, including microscopy techniques and sensors.
