The properties of terahertz (THz) radiation pulses emitted by a metallic, large aspect ratio carbon nanotube antenna have been studied both in the THz waveforms and field distribution. The peak THz field up to 2.66 and 1.26 kV/cm are observed at the probe points. The proposed antenna is designed to operate for dual frequency applications from 2.36 to 2.58 THz and from 7.27 to 7.5 THz for less than dB return loss.
