THz is an emerging technology with many important applications in imaging and sensing, but due to lack of suitable low-loss waveguides future progress can be limited. A rigorous full-vectorial modal solution approach based on the computationally efficient finite element method is used to find the propagation properties of THz waveguides. Design approaches are presented to reduce the modal loss of such waveguides. Designs of several THz devices, including quantum cascade lasers, power splitters and narrow-band filters are also presented.
