The effects of bending a 2-dimensional planar array of rectangular split-ring resonators (SRRs) is observed by mounting the array to varying diameter HDPE cylinders. By studying the transmission of pulsed THz light through the SRR-cylinder system, it shown that the resonant frequency and response of the arrays are tunable as a function of the radius of curvature.
