Abstract

Standard optical lithography relying on clean room and microelectronic facilities is used to fabricate a thin-flexible metamaterial absorber, designed to operate at submillimeter wavelengths over the 0.1–1 THz frequency band. Large terahertz absorption has been demonstrated numerically and through experimental measurements with a maximum level of about 80%. We put emphasis in this present work on the use of single-sized “meta-cells” to achieve multiple absorption peaks. Furthermore, the use of a thin-flexible dielectric spacer makes it promising for stealth technology applications in order to disguise objects and make them less visible to radar and other detection methods.

Fig. 1.

Microscope image of the proposed metamaterial absorber. The relevant geometrical dimensions of the elementary meta-cell viewed in the inset (top left) of the figure are a=b=300μm; c=50μm; d=100μm; e=20μm; f=250μm; g=50μm; l=150μm; t=50μm; tg=200nm. In the inset (top right) of the figure, we can see the dielectric substrate used as a spacer caught between two fingers in order to illustrate its large flexibility.

(a) Simulated (solid lines) and measured (dashed lines) reflection and absorption spectra of the triple-band metamaterial absorber. (b) Calculated absorption of the entire structure and that resulting from the contribution of different sub-elements constituting the unit cell of the metamaterial-based absorber.

Fig. 3.
Fig. 3.

(a) Elementary cell of the DLMA proposed as an alternative to the original structure in order to enhance the amplitude of the fundamental absorption peak, with the relevant geometrical dimensions: a=b=300μm; c=250μm; gair is varying from 50 to 150 μm; tg=200nm; t=50μm. (b) Optimization of the design parameter gair for the best compromise in amplitude of the fundamental peak absorption initially occurs around 0.22 THz.
