Cnt antennas: A comparison between GHz and THz regimes
Ashutosh Chandra,  Deepti Chahar,  Saurabh Sachdeva
In this paper, we have simulated carbon nanotube antennas on CST Microwave Studio 2014. We have compared the directivity of dipole antennas along with the coiled antennas in the terahertz and gigahertz frequency regime. Through this comparison we have tried to show the possibility of using terahertz waves as an alternative to the currently used microwaves for several purposes such as imaging, wireless communication along with applications in biomedicine (computer aided tomography) and astronomy. We have also proved that the directivity of antennas operating in the terahertz frequency band possess more directivity than those in the gigahertz band.
Keywords- Carbon nanotubes, dipole antenna, coiled antenna, terahertz, gigahertz
