Abstract
The fundamental parameters of THz modulators based on the SRR structure metamaterial have been researched and found that the SRR size and opening width have a significant effect on the resonant frequency, meanwhile the thickness and width of this structure are very weak influence on the resonant frequency. The resonant frequency and response time have been calculated theoretically. The resonant frequency fits the simulation results well, and response time is mainly determined by the carrier lifetime which is in nanosecond order. We also proposed a program of experimental measurements of the SRR modulation speed. Finally we simulated a special SRR structure with metal strips on the back of wafer to increase modulation depth significantly.
