Abstract

Retardation-based stripe antennas due to the excitation of spoof surface plasmons on a corrugated metal stripe are proposed and numerically studied in the terahertz regime, revealing sharp Fabry–Perot resonances in scattering cross-section spectra with strongly enhanced local fields. The order of the resonance exhibiting the sharpest scattering cross section and strongest field enhancements (FEs) is found to coincide with the number of grooves, due to the hybridization of the antenna resonance with the individual groove resonance. The proposed (spoof surface plasmon-based) antennas with narrow resonances and large FE open up new possibilities for metamaterial design and seem very promising for sensing applications in the terahertz frequencies.
