We study terahertz (THz) radiation properties from high-Tc superconductor thin film log-periodic antennas. Three sets of wire grid polarizers are employed to characterize the frequency-dependent polarization of the THz beam. The polarized radiation has clear resonance at frequencies corresponding to the antenna structures. The polarization patterns are thus well explained by the antenna structures.
