Abstract

In this Letter, we give a general description of the illumination and object properties for obtaining total absorption. We show theoretically and numerically that properly designed sub-100 nm metallic particles are able to absorb all the energy of an incident beam if the latter is adequately shaped. In addition to their interest as absorbers, these particles act as efficient near-field probes as they convert the incident propagating beam into a localized nonradiative field.

Figures (4)

Fig. 1.
Fig. 1.

Illustration of the total absorption condition. (a) A reference medium is placed in a ball W is illuminated by sources placed outside W. The reference field Eref that is created in W satisfies neither the outgoing nor ingoing wave boundary conditions. (b) Lossy object Ω is introduced in the reference lossless medium. Under the total absorption condition, the field E that is created in W satisfies the ingoing wave boundary conditions.

Fig. 2.
Fig. 2.

Metallic nanosphere in vacuum is illuminated under 4-pi configuration. Ratio in dB units of the outgoing energy flux over the incoming energy flux obtained as a function of the illumination wavelength and the sphere radius. Sphere made of (a) silver and (b) gold.

Fig. 3.
Fig. 3.

Same as Fig. 2 but the metallic sphere is coated with a thin dielectric layer of relative permittivity 2.25. The sphere core is made of silver. (a) The dielectric shell is 10 nm thick. (b) The dielectric shell is 20 nm thick.

Fig. 4.
Fig. 4.

Modulus of the electric field in the vicinity of a silver nanosphere with radius a=36nm and λ=380nm under 4-pi illumination as a function of (a) x for y=z=0, and (b) z for x=y=0. Dashed curve, the field Eref existing without the sphere. Solid curve, the field E existing in presence of the sphere. The dotted curves indicate the position the nanosphere surface.
