Abstract

All-dielectric metasurface absorbers have great potential in many scientific and technical applications. The emerging metasurfaces show strong and versatile capabilities in controlling absorptance, reflectance, and transmittance of electromagnetic waves. In this work, we propose and investigate all-dielectric metasurface absorbers with an equivalent circuit model. In the proposed circuit model, we satisfy the first Kerker condition. To verify the accuracy of the proposed model, the obtained results for an all-dielectric cubic metasurface absorber are compared with the existing experimental data. Moreover, using the proposed circuit model, we propose a hemisphere structure and compare the results of the proposed model with those of full-wave simulations. With this novel structure, we achieve higher absorptance and quality factor in comparison to a cubic one. Additionally, our proposed model reduces the calculation time and needs less memory compared to full-wave simulations. The results of the circuit model have an acceptable agreement with the experimental data and those of full-wave simulations. The proposed circuit model is simple yet general. It provides physical insight into the design and operation of various sub-wavelength structures in the broad frequency range, including THz and visible regions.
