Existence of a Fundamental Tradeoff Between Absorptivity and Omnidirectionality in Metasurfaces (JW1A.98)
Presenter: Kunal Shastri, Cornell University
Perfect absorptivity coupled with omnidirectionality is a design goal for many absorbers and emitters used in sensing. We report the existence of a fundamental tradeoff between these two quantities in thin metasurface based absorbers.
