In this study, we propose and fabricate an oscillator array composed of three resonant-tunneling-diode terahertz oscillators integrated with slot-coupled patch antennas, and which does not require a Si lens. We measure the radiation pattern for single and arrayed oscillator, and calculate the output power using the integration of the pattern. The output power of a single oscillator was found to be ～15 µW. However, using an array configuration, almost combined output power of ～55 µW was obtained.
