Abstract
The absorption characteristics of complex medium structures having metasurfaces comprised of columnar nanorods of gold were investigated. In this stream, a periodically arranged assembly of vertical gold nanorods of circular and elliptical cross sections, backed by chromium nanorods of the same cross-sectional size and shape, was considered to be the metasurface, and the comparative features of the absorption characteristics were emphasized. The results exhibit very high absorption corresponding to certain wavelengths in the visible span, and the absorber having elliptical gold nanorods yields a better performance than the one with circular nanorods in terms of the magnitude/smoothness of the absorption peaks.
