Abstract

We present compact and easy-to-realize terahertz bandpass filters with Q values in the order of 500. The filters are based on coherently interfering reflections from two parallel metasurfaces applied to the boundaries of a semiconductor disk. By changing the thickness of the semiconductor disk and the dimensions of the metasurface structures, the filter can be optimized for various terahertz frequencies. Moreover, a precise tuning of the resonance frequency is possible via the temperature of the structure or its angle with respect to the propagation direction.
