We present the design, fabrication, and measurement of a terahertz (THz) polymer‐supported filter. A periodic structure, frequency selective surfaces (FSS) is employed to provide bandpass characteristic for this filter design with polyimide (PI) film as a substrate. This PI film (13 μm thick) is very thin and thus provides a flexible support to the filter. The average extracted dielectric constant ε r is 3.35 and the average refractive index n s is 1.84. The final filter structure was fabricated using standard microfabrication process. The measured transmission response shows high percentage of transmission (~80%) with the peak at 0.58 THz and sharp roll‐off that covers the broad range of frequency from 0.1 to 1 THz (wavelength of 300 μm‐3000 μm).
