Abstract

In this paper, we propose and numerically investigate an ultra-broadband, wide-angle, and polarization-independent metasurface absorber based on periodic hexagon-latticed titanium (Ti) nanoring arrays over a continuous Ti film. The proposed absorber can achieve more than 90% absorptivity under normal incidence, ranging from 350 to 1453 nm, and the average absorption is up to 95.6%. Additionally, the absorptivity still remained beyond 70% when the incident angles varied from 0° to 60°. The simulations of electric field distributions indicate that the broadband absorption performance can be ascribed to the superposition of the localized surface plasmon resonance (LSPR) originated from the nanopillars and nanoholes, respectively. The proposed approach is simple and inexpensive, and the metal material is optional. Therefore, we believe that the proposed absorber will be a candidate for many potential applications, such as thermophotovoltaic cells, thermal emitters, and optoelectronic devices.
