Dual-Band Light Absorption Enhancement in Hyperbolic Rectangular Array
AbstractThe effect of dual-band light absorption enhancement in a hyperbolic rectangular array (HRA) is presented. The enhanced light absorption of the HRA results from the propagating surface plasmon (PSP) resonance, and a dual-band absorption with low and flat sideband level can be realized. The impedance theory is used to evaluate the absorption properties of the HRA, and shows that the input impedances of the HRA varied abruptly around the absorption bands to meet the impedance matching. The absorption spectra of the HRA can be estimated using the effective medium theory (EMT), and its accuracy can be improved as the number of film stacks is increased. The dual-band absorptions of the HRA are very robust to the variations of the width and the number of film stack. Potential application in refractive index sensing can be achieved by utilizing the two absorption bands. View Full-Text
