Terahertz (THz) surface plasmons (SPs) can be effectively used in THz communication lines, information processing devices, spectroscopic measurements of submicron dielectric layers, and metal surface quality control. Such applications necessitate implementation of various optical schemes, including splitting of THz SPs on the guiding surface. This work is the first experimental demonstration of the fact that a polyimide kapton film of submillimetre thickness can effectively split THz SPs. Measurements of the transmission and reflection coefficients of SPs on gold-ZnS layer plane structures using monochromatic radiation of the Novosibirsk free-electron laser (?=130 μm) have shown good accordance with theoretical calculations.
