Highly flexible wide angle of incidence terahertz metamaterial absorber: Design, fabrication, and characterization


Journal Article

We present the design, fabrication, and characterization of a metamaterial absorber which is resonant at terahertz frequencies. We experimentally demonstrate an absorptivity of 0.97 at 1.6 THz. Importantly, our absorber is only 16 μm thick, resulting in a highly flexible material that, further, operates over a wide range of angles of incidence for both transverse electric and transverse magnetic radiation. © 2008 The American Physical Society.
