In this paper, we demonstrate an ultra-broadband terahertz (THz) bi-metasurfaces absorber composed of two stacking metasurfaces backed by a metallic ground plane. The bottom metasurface consists of four multiplexed cross resonators with different geometries on a thin parylene layer, achieving a bandwidth of 3.80 THz with the absorption higher than 50% at high frequency. Meanwhile, the top metasurface, including two multiplexed cross resonators with different sizes on a relatively thicker parylene layer, provides a low frequency absorption band with an additional Salisbury screen absorption peak that connects the two absorption bands of the two metasurfaces, therefore enabling an ultra-broadband absorption. The experimental absorption spectrum of the bi-metasurfaces shows a bandwidth of 4.46 THz while the absorption exceeding 50% and a full width at half maxima (FWHM) of 97.7%. The ultra-broadband absorber will be a promising candidate for THz broadband detection.
