Here, a germanium‐thin‐film‐based flexible metaphotonic device for ultrafast optical switching of terahertz radiation is experimentally demonstrated. A resonant transmission modulation depth of 90% is achieved, with an ultrafast full recovery time of 17 ps. An observed sub‐picosecond decay constant of 670 fs is attributed to the presence of trap‐assisted recombination sites in the thermally evaporated germanium film.||URI:||https://hdl.handle.net/10356/88839
