Abstract

We propose an ultra-broadband super light absorber by integrating different-sized tapered hyperbolic metamaterial (HMM) waveguides, each of which has a different and wide absorption band due to broadband slow-light response, into a unit cell. We numerically demonstrate that such an absorber is superior to a single-sized HMM absorber in terms of absorption bandwidth, while maintaining a comparable absorption efficiency. A three different-sized HMM absorber presents the capability of working with an ultra-wide frequency band ranging from 1 to 30 THz, which is much larger than previously proposed absorbers working in the same spectral region. Such a design shows great promise for a broad range of applications such as thermal emitters, photovoltaics, optical-chemical energy harvesting, and stealth technology, where ultra-wideband absorption is in very high demand.
