Abstract

In this paper, a novel broadband plasmonic absorber based on cross-shaped titanium nitride (TiN) resonators in the ultraviolet, visible, and near-infrared regions is presented. The proposed perfect solar absorber consists of periodic arrays of cross-shaped TiN resonators located on a stack of ${{\rm SiO}_2}/{\rm TiN}$ layers. By using the finite-difference time-domain method, the effects of variations of the thickness and radius of the elliptical metasurface resonators on the absorption are comprehensively investigated. The cross-shaped metamaterial absorber exhibits an averaged absorption of 90%, ranging from 200 to 3000 nm, and shows over 90% absorption from 200 to 2500 nm. Furthermore, the proposed absorber indicates absorption efficiency over 80% for an oblique incidence up to 50 deg for both TE- and TM-polarized light. These features make the proposed solar absorber usable in many solar-based applications, imaging, and thermal emitting.
