Abstract: At present, the utilization of the terahertz band for communications remains a hypothetical scenario. This thesis presents a design for a communications setup for terahertz frequencies of kilometer range distances using a reflector antenna design. The primary focus is the terahertz radiating element of the system. Building upon published experimental work a simulation based approach is developed that duplicates experimental work. Next, this simulation setup is used with a new proposed design methodology is used to develop the primary radiators. A structure intended to be used with a photoconductive switch is selected and various design parameters are studied. The summation of the study concludes with a proposed experimental design that will be built and studied.
