Abstract-Experimental realization of Mie-resonance terahertz absorber by self-assembly method

Jiannan Gao, Chuwen Lan, Qian Zhao, Bo Li, and Ji Zhou

Mie-resonance terahertz absorbers by self-assembly method are designed and demonstrated in experiments and simulations. A monolayer of zirconium dioxide (ZrO2) microspheres fixed on a copper film with designed grids that were manufactured by direct writing with a composite ink system composed of polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS). More importantly, different spacing and array configurations were created economically and efficiently, showing visual performance. Magnetic resonance leads to near-unity absorption at about 0.4 THz in the samples. This work demonstrates efficient terahertz absorbers and highlights a novel direct writing fabrication method that can be extended to produce other optical devices for applications.
