ABSTRACT
We report the operation of band-stop filters in the terahertz (THz) frequency range, working at a center frequency of 600 GHz. The filters were characterized by embedding them in a microstrip line attached to photoconductive switches which act as THz emitters and detectors. The filters have applications in sensing and detection. The chosen filter design allows cascading of several filters along the same microstrip line, which is of particular importance for a proposed molecular sensing array.
