Abstract

We present a theoretical study on the performance of graphene-loaded coplanar waveguide switches for 5G and beyond applications. Therefore, we exploit the tunable properties of graphene to device cost-effective, large-scale, broadband sub-millimeter-wave switches. Given the sheet impedance of biased and unbiased graphene monolayers, the model provides the optimum switching ratio with respect to insertion loss, characteristic impedance of transmission line, and graphene geometry. Using measured graphene sheet resistance, we compute the optimum switching performance for series and shunt single-pole-single-though sub-millimeter-wave (220-330 GHz) switches.
