Abstract: An electromagnetic crystals (EMXT) cavity filter with photonic band gap (PBG) structure is analyzed and a narrowband filter operating at around 0.5 THz is designed. The filter is simulated using the finite element method and it can be fabricated by micro-electromechanical systems (MEMS) technology, due to its low cost, high performance and high processing precision. The simulation results show the filter has a good performance. The passband bandwidth is 7%, the rejection at one time bandwidth out of the passband is larger than 30 dB, and the insertion loss in the passband is less than 1 dB.

Keywords:Terahertz, Cavity filter, PBG Structure .
