THz encoders have distinct advantages for position sensing compared with other types of encoders, such as those based on optical and inductive sensors. A polarization-dependent metamaterial absorber reflects one polarization while absorbs the other, which makes it an ideal building block for the barcode of a THz encoder system. In this paper, we present the design, fabrication, and experiments of a THz polarization-dependent metamaterial absorber, and its application to a polarimetric sensing system.
