We describe the conceptual and computational design, and characterization of metamaterials operating at terahertz frequencies. Various metamaterial geometries are selected based upon their point group symmetries and simulated in finite difference time domain electromagnetic wave solvers. Structures are fabricated with standard optical lithographic techniques and characterized in both frequency and time domain THz spectrometers.
