Abstract

In this paper, we have presented the simulation results of a rectangular microstrip patch antenna at terahertz (THz) frequency ranging from 0.7 to 0.85 THz. THz electromagnetic wave can permit more densely packed communication links with increased security of communication transmission. The simulated results such as gain, radiation efficiency and 10 dB impedance bandwidth of rectangular microstrip patch antenna at THz frequencies without shorting post configuration are 3.497 dB, 55.71% and 17.76%, respectively, whereas with shorting post configuration, corresponding parameters are 3.502 dB, 55.88% and 17.27%. The simulation has been performed by using CST Microwave Studio, which is a commercially available electromagnetic simulator based on the method of finite difference time domain technique.
