Abstract

We experimentally demonstrate a wideband near-perfect light absorber in the midwave IR region using a multiplexed plasmonic metal structure. The wideband near-perfect light absorber is made of two different size gold metal squares multiplexed on a thin dielectric spacing layer on top of a thick metal layer in each unit cell. We also fabricate regular nonmultiplexed structure perfect light absorbers. The multiplexed structure IR absorber absorbs more than 98% of the incident light over a much wider spectral band than regular nonmultiplexed structure perfect light absorbers in the midwave IR region.
