Abstract

A simple five-band terahertz metamaterial perfect absorber, composed of an asymmetric double-gap square split ring and a metallic ground plate spaced by a thin polyimide dielectric layer, is proposed and theoretically investigated. The results show that it can perform absorption peaks at five resonant frequencies whose peaks average 98.85%. The perfect absorption is mainly attributed to the combined effect of LC, dipole, and surface response of the structure. Compared to previously reported multiband absorbers, our design only has a single and compact structure, which can drastically simplify the design and fabrication process. Furthermore, the resonance absorption properties of the absorber can be tuned by changing the geometric parameters of the structure. Such a simple and effective design holds great promise for potential applications in spectroscopic imaging, biological sensing, and detecting of drugs and explosives.
