Abstract

In this study, we propose a dual-band wide-range tunable terahertz absorber based on graphene and bulk Dirac semimetal (BDS), which consists of a patterned BDS array, dielectric material, continuous graphene layer, and gold mirror. Simulation results show that the absorption at 3.97 and 7.94 THz achieve almost 100%. By changing the Fermi energy of graphene and BDS, the resonance frequency can be tuned between 3.97 and 9.28 THz. In addition, we found that when the background refractive index changes, the absorption is almost the same. This feature will broaden its applications. Finally, the influence of structural parameters and incident angles on device performance is discussed. The proposed absorber may have potential applications in photoelectric sensors and other optoelectronic devices.
