Abstract:

A significant need exists for developing active and passive components in the millimeter MM and submillimeter SMM wavelength, i.e., 100-1000 GHz. The use of solid state materials and phenomena, particularly for semiconductors, has become increasingly important in this direction. One principal semiconductor phenomenon which has been explored for use in MM and SMM control components is the solid state plasma state. Derived from this state are controllable conductive and dielectric properties which, in turn, are useful in controlling MM and SMM transmission and propagation. Furthermore, with the application of a static magnetic field, magnetized solid state plasmas exhibit a variety of interesting and potentially useful effects. Studies of electromagnetic EM wave interaction with magnetized semiconductor plasmas have revealed a number of specific physical properties which may be used for device purposes. In this work, we study first the propagation characteristic of SMM wave in one dimensional insulated image guide structures.
