  • Patent number: 8558745
    Abstract: An antenna arrangement for generating and receiving terahertz radiation is described. The arrangement comprises a substrate comprising a photoconductive material and a pair of electrodes provided on the photoconductive material. Each electrode includes a plurality of elongate fingers spaced apart from each other which are arranged in a parallel relation and define finger gaps therebetween. The fingers of one electrode are located within the finger gaps formed between the spaced apart fingers of another electrode so that two neighboring fingers belong to different electrodes. The fingers of each electrode have at least one protrusion extending away from lateral sides of the fingers within the finger gap.

  • Patent number: 8450691
    Abstract: A high frequency radiation transceiver is presented. The transceiver includes an electrodes' arrangement, including two or more electrodes, where two of said electrodes are accommodated in a spaced-apart relationship defining a cavity for free space propagation of electrons between them. One of said two electrodes is configured to be responsive to an external input optical signal to emit an electron flux towards the other electrode. Said two or more electrodes are configured to define first and second electrode portions, the first portion having at least a region thereof exposed to said electron flux and operable as an antenna feeding port causing an electric current in said second portion and the second portion being configured and operable as an antenna radiating portion.

  • Patent number: 7113141
    Abstract: A dipole fractal antenna and a method of manufacturing thereof are described. The antenna includes a pair of oppositely directed radiating arms coupled to a feeding terminal and extended therefrom along a central axis in a common plane. At least a portion of each radiating arm has a fractal geometric shape. The antenna also includes at least one pair of electrical shunts configured for connecting at least two points selected within the fractal portion of one radiating arm correspondingly to two points selected within the fractal portion of another radiating arm. The dipole fractal antenna further may comprise a balun arranged at the feeding terminal and configured for coupling the pair of oppositely directed radiating arms to a coaxial cable to provide a balanced feed.
