In this paper it is presented the fabrication of low loss millimeter wave metamaterials based on patterning on polypropylene substrates by conventional contact photolitography. We study numerically and experimentally the transmission and reflection properties of two dimensional arrays of split ring resonators (SRRs), or metasurfaces, and their complementary structure (CSRRs) for co- and cross-polarization excitations up to submillimeter frequencies under normal incidence conditions. The obtained results suggest the possibility of scaling them at terahertz frequencies based on this substrate where other lossy substrates degrade the resonators quality. Left-handed metamaterials derived from these SRRs and CSRRs metasurfaces could be feasible.
