Abstract

We designed and microfabricated a (2×2) silicon platelet horn antenna at 560 GHz, which is the highest frequency ever among silicon corrugated horn antennas. This was enabled by a silicon compression pin alignment technique of which inaccuracy is less than ± 2 μm in layer-to-layer. The simulation results show that the return loss and gain across the operation frequency of 490-600 GHz are approximately 25 dB and 22 dBi, respectively. The cross-polarization level is below -40 dB. The feature of batch processing will enable us simultaneously to build hundreds or thousands of horn antennas.
