We demonstrate resonantly enhanced transmission of terahertz radiation through metal foils perforated with periodic arrays of sub-wavelength apertures. The quality factor of the transmission resonances is more than an order of magnitude larger than observed at optical frequencies. We discuss the effect of aperture shape on the transmission spectrum.
