Imaging applications at terahertz (THz) frequencies are limited to relatively low spatial resolution due to the effects of diffraction. A subwavelength aperture can be used to improve the resolution at the cost of low transmission. Plasmonic lenses in the form of bullseye structures, consisting of a single subwavelength circular aperture surrounded by concentric periodic corrugations, have shown enhanced transmission and beam confinement. In this paper, we discuss the design and performance of plasmonic lenses optimized for transmission at 325 GHz.
