Abstract

We present a model of an infrared metamaterial absorber composed of metal dendritic resonators, dielectric substrate, and continuous metal film. Numerical simulation confirms an absorptivity of 98.6% at the infrared wavelength of 2.79μm. The proposed metamaterial absorber has an excellence of two-dimensional isotropy, and it could be fabricated with a chemical double-template technique. Our simulation shows it could be operated for a wide range of incident angles. The optical metamaterial absorber proposed in this paper has potential applications such as in infrared imaging devices, thermal bolometers, and wavelength-selective radiators.
