Abstract:
Realizing perfect light absorption in stacked thin films of dielectrics and metals through critical light coupling has recently received intensive research attention. In addition, realizing ultrathin perfect absorber and tunable perfect absorber in the visible spectrum is essential for novel optoelectronics applications. However, the existing thin film stacks cannot show tunable perfect absorption in a wide-angle range. Here, we propose tunable perfect absorption from normal incidence to a wide-angle range (0º to 70o) by utilizing a two-layer stack consisting of a high refractive index low-loss dielectric on a high reflecting metal. We experimentally demonstrate this by depositing a thin layer of low-loss phase change material such as Sb2S3 on a thin layer of silver. This structure shows tunable perfect absorption with large spectral tunability in the visible wavelength. Furthermore, we demonstrate absorption enhancement in 2D materials by transferring monolayer MoS2 on the stack, which shows 96% light absorption with enhanced photoluminescence. In addition, the thin film stack can work as a scalable phase modulator offering a maximum phase tunability of ~140 o by changing the structural state of Sb2S3 from amorphous to crystalline.
