Abstract

In the past, it has been demonstrated that it is possible to produce terajets with high resolution at its focus using 3D dielectric cuboids under plane-wave illumination. Here, a systematic study of the harmonic and angular response of terajets using cuboids is performed. Mutifrequency focusing is demonstrated at the fundamental frequency and two higher frequency harmonics showing an intensity enhancement of ∼10, ∼18, and ∼14 for each case. This capability to use 3D dielectric cuboids to produce terajets at the fundamental frequency and first harmonic is experimentally evaluated at sub-THz frequencies, with good agreement with numerical results. Moreover, a robust angular response is demonstrated numerically and experimentally showing that the intensity at the focal position is maintained in a wide angular range (from 0° to 45°), demonstrating the capability to work as a wide scanning terajet-focusing lens. The results here presented may be scaled at different frequency bands such as optical frequencies and may be used in microscopy techniques and sensors.
