Carbon Nanotube Based Ridge Gap Resonator for 220–325 GHz
Research paper in the proceedings of MEMSWAVE 2014, La Rochelle, France, 30 June–2 July, 2014.
One-dimensional carbon nanostructures have been known and fabricated for more than a hundred years and were originally Measurements on a carbon nanotube based ridge gap resonator are presented in this paper. Carbon nanotubes are utilized as a base material for rapid prototyping of gap waveguide devices. Here it has been implemented on a ridge gap resonator for 220–325 GHz. The carbon nanotube based structure is compared to a previously fabricated Si-based device and to simulations.
