Abstract

Imaging Technologies has been widely used for medical applications. Among various technologies, THz imaging offers safe imaging technique for human tissues. However, in such high frequencies, antenna design for radiating and receiving takes more attention due to dimension constraint and very small wavelength. In this paper, we study rectangular linear array microstrip antenna to obtain proper beamwidth and high gain used for THz imaging system. The considered resonant frequency is 312 GHz. The design has been simulated by using CST Microwave Studio. The results show that the three elements provide gain, horizontal beamwidth, and vertical beamwidth of 11.25 dB, 77.5 degrees, and 26.6 degrees, respectively. Those results can be considered to obtain low power and good resolution in a THz imaging system.
