Superabsorption of light by multilayer nanowires

Mirzaei, Ali; Shadrivov, Ilya; Miroshnichenko, Andrey; Kivshar, Yuri


We suggest a new strategy for tailoring and enhancing the absorption of light by multilayered nanowires. We use the multipole expansion method and experimental data for dielectric and plasmonic materials and demonstrate that the absorption for one of the polarizations can be substantially enhanced due to an overlap of different resonant modes in nanowires. We show that our approach can be employed for a design of multiband tunable optical absorption across a wide spectral range for both TE and...[Show more]
