A new terahertz filter based on the coupling of guided-mode resonances and Fabry-Perot resonance is presented resulting in a flat top response. The spectral response lies in the sub-THz communication windows with central frequency of 300 GHz. The filter performance shows high transmittance, with less than 3dB losses, and high out-of-band rejection. The filter is fabricated via standard photolithography on thin films of the Zeonor polymer. This typology of THz components provides a cost-effective functional solution for narrowband filtering in emerging THz devices and systems for telecommunication.
