Ongoing progress in the development of microwave circuits has highlighted the additional vital challenge of transmission of quantum information. As a practicable solution to this problem, we propose to propagate a low loss TM Sommerfeld mode on the surface of a superconducting Niobium wire held between transmitters and receivers or between different quantum systems. Here we present simulations performed in ANSYS-HFSS pertaining to this mode along with the theoretical results obtained for a Niobium wire at THz frequencies and temperatures of a few Kelvin.
