We propose a tunable meta-surface in the terahertz regime by Patterning a graphene sheet in cut-wire array. The enhancement of terahertz absorption of such a graphene meta-surface was studied detailedly via the optimization to the geometry of the structure. Considering the data of graphene in both the experimental and theoretical perspectives, we investigated the performance of the absorbing graphene meta-surface by extracting its effective surface conductivities through a sheet retrieval method. We also specifically considered two sets of well-known experimental graphene data and comparatively studied the properties of graphene meta-surface by changing the graphene parameters in-between. It shows that there has been significant improvement in preparing high-quality graphene samples, which makes it possible to strengthen optical properties of graphene microstructures, and therefore benefits various practical applications.
