Short summary
Metamaterials are artificial composite structures with unusual physical properties such as the perfect absorption of light, which can be exploited to improve the spectral sensitivity and selectivity of thermal detectors. The desired detector characteristics are engineered by tuning the absorption properties of metamaterials. The numerical simulations demonstrate polarization-independent absorption of disc-shaped dielectric/metallic absorbers and their integration capability in thermal detectors.
