Paper Abstract

In this letter, a bi-layer metamaterial composed of SRR layer and split wires layer is proposed, and the anisotropy of THz propagation through this MTM was firstly addressed and the intrinsic physic foundation was preliminarily discussed. The metamaterial consists of SRR layer, polyimide slab, and metal wires layer on GaAs substrate. A strong absorbance of 99.93% is obtained at 0.836 THz when the THz wave propagates in the "positive" directions of the absorber while in the "negative" case this value is only 2.16%. Our results indicate a strong interaction coupling between the SRR layer and the wires layer, which significantly enhanced the value of the power loss in the space between the two metal layers, leading to the perfect absorbance. The wires layer is a wave reflector which reflects most of the THz wave thus induced the absorbance anisotropy of this metamaterial.
