Concentric tubes silicon-based metamaterial structure for mid-IR broadband absorption
In this work, we are proposing a silicon (Si) based concentric tube broadband absorber. The proposed broadband absorber is composed of consecutive concentric tubes of intrinsic Si and doped-Si (D-Si) layers. The structure exhibits a broadband performance within a wide range of mid-IR wavelength spectrum extending from 3 to 7 µm with an absorption peak that varies between 0.88 and 0.97 in the case
