Abstract

We propose the design of a quasi-optical directional coupler toward the implementation of the first quasi-optical terahertz (THz) vector network analyzer (VNA). With the proper use of lenses and splitters, we design a quasi-optical topology that isolates the reference from the measured signal. This configuration could pave the way for the first true THz VNA by implementing standard photonic-based THz sources and detectors. The quasi-optical topology is simulated at 300-400 GHz and the numerical results show a first proof of concept of the proposed system.
