Abstract-Terahertz absorber based on Fano-like resonance of inverted quadrangular frustum pyramid metal grooves and sensor application
Yingying Yu, Bo Sun,
We investigate the multi-resonance coupling of inverted quadrangular frustum pyramid groove metal arrays at terahertz frequencies. The surface plasmon resonance (SPR) and groove resonance are induced, resulting in resonance coupling. The dipole of the groove resonance drives the quadrupole of the SPR and creates a sharp Fano-like resonance. The effects of geometry parameters including the width (at the bottom) and height are analyzed in detail. The results show that with the decrease in the sidewall slope of the groove, the confinement of the groove region on the electromagnetic field decreases, thereby increasing the resonance coupling. The Fano-like resonance is enhanced. The sensitivity and quality factor are discussed. The results show that the Fano-like resonance has high sensitivity and quality factor. With the increase in the sidewall slope of the groove, the sensitivity increases, and the quality factor decreases. The results show that the Fano-like resonance of inverted quadrangular frustum pyramid groove metal arrays has a significant potential for biological monitoring and sensing.
