Abstract

We present a broadband terahertz (THz) polarizer based on the stacks of aligned Ni nanowire (NW) arrays. We demonstrated that the polarizer has an extinction ratio of 58.8 dB and an average extinction ratio of 46.6 dB throughout a frequency range of 0.3–2.3 THz. Compared to carbon-nanotube and metallic wire-grid polarizers, our Ni-NW polarizers with rapid, reliable, low-cost fabrication processes are ideal candidates for emerging THz technologies.
