Microfabrication with Si has its benefits but it is time consuming when etching high ratio structures. Previously a ridge gap resonator has been fabricated in Si, with a pin height of 278 pm. In this paper carbon nanotubes, which can grow hundreds of micrometers within minutes are being used as a base material for a high frequency device. It has been implemented on a ridge gap resonator for 220-325 GHz. Carbon nanotubes based structures offer a rapid and low-cost turnover for prototyping. Measurements comparing two carbon nanotubes-based structures to a previously made Si structure and simulations are presented. From these measurements the unloaded Q-value and the loss/mm have been calculated and shows a loss of 0.079 dB/mm and 0.051 dB/mm for the lower frequency range respectively the higher frequency range, indicating that carbon nanotubes can be used for fast and low-cost prototyping of high-frequency devices.
