  1. A three-dimensional metamaterial tube is fabricated by rolling up 2D metamaterials on flexible PEN substrate. This novel 3D design of metamaterials can be used to effectively tune the resonance frequency by varying its diameter. Meanwhile, it can also be applied in material identification with a solid-core metamaterials tube.
... Characterization: The characterization is carried out by terahertz time- domain spectroscopy
(THz-TDS, Teraview TPS3000) in transmission mode. The axis of the 3D metamaterials tube
is kept parallel to the propagation direction of the incident terahertz wave, as illustrated ...
