We begin to explore the possibilities offered by two-dimensional quantum metamaterials by considering the transmission across a prototypical system, that is a square array of coupled qubits (two level quantum systems). We construct a simple model that accounts for the input and detection of propagating excitations in the system. We find that even a limited degree of control through an applied field can allow the tunability between distinctly different regimes of transmission properties.
