Metallic subwavelength structures for a broadband infrared absorption control.

Author information

Optical Engineering Laboratory, Faculty of Mechanical Engineering, Technion-Israel Institute of Technology, Haifa, Israel.


We present a method to control the absorption of a resonator by using a subwavelength structure consisting of thin metallic plates that behaves as a metamaterial film. We demonstrate the ability to tailor the conductivity of such a metallic subwavelength structure to achieve a resonator with the desired impedance matching for the mid-infrared range. This approach provides for broadband, as well as broad-angle, enhanced absorption. Theoretical analyses, as well as experimental results of the optical properties of a metallic NiCr structure at 8-12 microm spectral range are introduced.
