In this study, a wideband terahertz antenna for indoor wireless communication systems is proposed. Antenna has high input impedance which is reasonable for terahertz systems due to the high output impedance of terahertz sources. Proposed antenna has been designed to operate in 0.67 THz which is one of the appropriate frequencies considering the atmospheric attenuation conditions for short range indoor terahertz wireless communication systems. Designed antenna has 0.8 kohm input impedance at the center of the band and approximately 100 GHz -10 dB bandwidth at 0.67 THz.
