Abstract


We demonstrate an angular and polarization insensitive device for the absorption of infrared radiation.  These nano-antenna designs can be used in efficient detector and energy harvesting applications.  The metal - absorbing dielectric - metal architecture lends itself to simple fabrication and integration with other device processes.  We will show our design methodology and numerical and experimental results of fabricated structures.
