Abstract: 

In this paper, we investigate the near-field enhanced optical absorption and far-field radiation characteristics of plasmonic dipole nano-antenna with different geometries which are rectangular, square, circular, and ellipse dipoles. Localized E-field enhancement at the excitation gap and reflection profile in an infinite 2D array of each nano-antenna are characterized and optimized at the resonant frequency of 375 THz, which corresponds to the incident wavelength of 800 nm. Numerical results show that the ellipse nano-antenna produces the most enhanced electric field at the excitation gap whereas the circular nano-antenna yields the best reflection and far-field radiation characteristics. This research is useful for the researchers and designers in choosing appropriate plasmonic dipole nano-antennas when incorporating with a photoconductive antenna for terahertz radiation enhancement.
