Title: All-dielectric periodic terajet waveguide using an array of coupled cuboids

In this paper, the recently proposed technique to produce photonic jets (terajets at terahertz (THz) frequencies) using 3D dielectric cuboids is applied in the design of a mesoscale cuboid-chain waveguide. The chains are basically designed with several dielectric cubes with side λ{sub 0} placed periodically along the axial z-axis and separated by an air-gap. Based on this, a systematic study of the focusing properties and wave guiding of this chain is performed when the air-gap between the dielectric cubes is changed from 0.25λ{sub 0} to 3λ{sub 0} with the best performance achieved at 2.5λ{sub 0}. An analysis when losses are included in the cubes is also done, demonstrating a robust performance. Finally, the wave guiding is experimentally demonstrated at sub-THz frequencies with a good agreement with numerical results. The simulation results of focusing and transport properties are carried out using Finite Integration Technique. The results here presented may be scaled to any frequency ranges such as millimeter, sub-millimeter, and optical frequencies.
