This paper presents a novel ultra wideband circular slotted terahertz antenna design for detection of peptides in human body. In the proposed antenna design, the FR4 material has been used as a substrate having dielectric constant (?r) 4.4 and thickness of 1.5 ?m. The ground, patch and feed line are made up of Copper material with thickness of 0.02 ?m. The performance of terahertz antenna has been analysed in terms of bandwidth (THz), return loss (dB), directivity (dBi), gain (dB), VSWR and impedance (ohms). The designed antenna resonates at 6 THz with the bandwidth of 2375 GHz (5.423 THz - 7.798 THz). The return loss of the proposed antenna is -43.58 dB at the resonating frequency of 6 THz. The VSWR of the proposed antenna design is 1. For feeding the antenna, the microstrip feed line technique has been employed for proper impedance matching and the proposed antenna has an input impedance of 48.23?. The proposed terahertz antenna design has a gain and directivity of 7.547 dB and 7.247 dBi, respectively at the resonating frequency of 6 THz. The antenna has been designed and simulated using Computer Simulation Technology (CST) Microwave Studio 2014. The proposed antenna can be suitably employed for the detection of constituents of peptides in human body.
