We present a dipole-on-dielectric model for lithographic antennas used for bolometer coupling in the infrared. The predicted antenna patterns show good agreement with measurements of Au-on-Si spiral antennas at 9.5-μm wavelength. Angle- and polarization-resolved measurements are proposed, which will further probe the behavior of these antenna structures and facilitate refinement of the analytical models.
