The terahertz spectrum of electromagnetic waves is finding its position in various applications of day to day life because of its unique properties, including the penetration through opaque materials. Naturally occurring materials in this range are rare due to the display of a natural breakpoint of both electric, and magnetic resonances in these materials. However recent advances in artificially engineered materials, which show resonance in this region are able to harness desirable properties in the terahertz region. In this paper, terahertz design and fabrication issues have been explored along with their applications. A brief review of metamaterial terahertz applications has been carried out including metamaterial absorbers, filters, modulators, switches, lenses, and cloaking structures. The various patterns of metamaterial unit cells are discussed elaborately along with the possibility of flexible active terahertz structures.
