    • Abstract

       

      We report single and multiband linear polarisers for terahertz (THz) frequencies using cut-wire metamaterials (MM). The MMs were designed by finite-element method (FEM), fabricated by electron beam lithography, and characterised by THz time-domain spectroscopy. The MM unit cells consist of single or multiple length cut-wire pads of gold on semi-insulating gallium arsenide (GaAs) for single or multiple band polarisers. For example, a MM with a square unit cell of 50 $\mu$m size on 1 mm GaAs substrate with a gold cut wire of 65 $\mu$m length, 2 $\mu$m width, and 150 nm height gives a resonance around 1.05 THz. The dependence of the resonance frequency of the single-band polariser on the length of the cut-wires was explained based on transmission line model.
