Abstract

Successful application of THz waves requires a suitable ecosystem of components, including sources and detectors, lenses, waveguides and filters. The Photonic Devices and Systems Laboratory has been supporting a planned demonstrator for a near-THz chip-to-chip data link through the design, fabrication and testing of novel dielectric waveguides. Holey cladding and holey core designs are developed to support low loss data transport. Square cross sections support robust polarization multiplexing. The researchers have also demonstrated a vortex dielectric waveguide for spatial mode multiplexing.
