The photoconductive terahertz measurement technique was used for measurement of the radiation pattern from thick metal slits. Picosecond pulses were generated and detected by an ultrafast optoelectronic technique using a femtosecond pulse laser and a subpicosecond photoconductor. Photoconductive sampling measurements of the polarization-dependent diffraction of the picosecond electromagnetic pulses showed the highly polarized radiation characteristics of the photoconductive probing antenna (PCPA) compared with the finite-difference time-domain simulation. The radiation patterns from the slits were measured using a fiber-coupled PCPA. Investigation of the spatiotemporal radiation pattern from a thick metal slit shows the usefulness of the measurement set-up for time-domain and broadband antenna characterization. Together with the time-domain radiation pattern, the frequency-domain radiation pattern from the experimental transient response is presented in both amplitude and phase. It is demonstrated that the time-domain radiation pattern measurement using the photoconductive terahertz radiation technique is a promising characterization method for millimeter-wave and submillimeter-wave antenna time-domain testing
