Paper Abstract

Metamaterial perfect absorber (MPA) promises many applications due to its capability of complete suppression of transmission or/and reflection. The complete dissipation of the incident electromagnetic energy by the absorptive meta-atoms makes it a unique candidate in many photonic and optoelectronic devices. An ultrathin metamaterial absorber that consists of a periodic nanostrip metal on top of a planar dielectric slab backed by a conducting metal plate is presented. The spectral absorptivity of MPA is investigated by the finite difference time domain method from visible to near-infrared. The various geometrical and material parameters of MPA are optimized for maximum absorption.
