The transmission spectra of sub-wavelength cross metallic fractal slits in terahertz (THz) frequency region are presented by means of finite-difference-time-domain (FDTD) simulation. The transmission spectra with multiple pass bands and stop bands are observed. To understand the physical mechanism of the enhanced transmissions, we simulated the electric field distribution of THz radiation within the metallic slits at the resonance frequencies by the electromagnetic design software named CONCERTO. Further analysis reveals that the two transmission peaks in the low frequency is the local resonance of electric field of the two cross slit, respectively. The third transmission peak is the co-effect of the two level cross slits. Our simulation is helpful for the understanding of THz wave propagation and THz transmission through the cross metallic fractal structures. It is also useful for the development of THz photonic devices.
