Angular Dependence of the Radiation Power of a Josephson STAR-emitter

We calculate the angular dependence of the power of stimulated terahertz amplified radiation (STAR) emitted from a dc voltage applied across a stack of intrinsic Josephson junctions. During coherent emission, we assume that a spatially uniform ac Josephson current density in the stack acts as a surface electric current density antenna source, and the cavity features of the stack are contained in a magnetic surface current density source. A superconducting substrate acts as a perfect magnetic conductor with H ||,ac=0 on its surface. The combined results agree very well with recent experimental observations. Existing Bi2Sr2CaCu2O8+δ crystals atop perfect electric conductors could have Josephson STAR-emitter power in excess of 5 mW, acceptable for many device applications.
