A superlattice structure of planar metamaterial is fabricated, where the orientation of double-split ring resonators is altered in a periodic way. A time-domain terahertz transmission spectrum shows an enhanced Q-factor resonance appears when a closed mode is selectively excited by angular tuning of polarization direction. The polarization-angle selective resonance in metamaterial superlattice has a potential application in the selective field enhancement for spectroscopy.
