We report on the transmission of a terahertz (THz) radiation through prototype structures based on a p-type silicon substrate. In particular, the bare substrate and progressively more complicated multilayer structures were investigated, allowing to address the effect on the transmission of different factors, such as the orientation of interdigitated contacts with respect to the polarized beam, the temperature, and the current flowing through a conductive SnO2 nanorods layer. A suitable experimental set-up was developed for the direct spectral measurement of transmission in the range of 0.75–1.1 THz at room and low temperatures. A simple Drude-Lorentz model was formulated, finding a quantitative agreement with the experimental transmission spectrum of the bare substrate at room temperature. For the multilayer structures, the spectra variations observed with temperature are well accounted by the corresponding …
