We present a multi-band terahertz absorber formed by periodic square metallic ribbon with T-shaped gap and a metallic ground plane separated by a dielectric layer. It is demonstrated that absorption spectra of the proposed structure consist of four absorption peaks located at 1.12, 2.49, 3.45, and 3.91 THz with high absorption coefficients of 98.0, 98.9, 98.7, and 99.6%, respectively. It is demonstrated that the proposed absorber has the tunability from single-band to broadband by changing the length of square metallic ribbon and we can also select or tune the frequencies which we want to use by changing polarization angles. Importantly, the quality factor Q at 3.91 THz is 30.1, which is 5.6 times higher than that of 1.12 THz. These results indicate that the proposed absorber has a promising potential for devices, such as detection, sensing, and imaging.
