Abstract

Theoretical calculations predict that under certain special conditions a shallow fine pitch diffraction grating, given a precise dielectric overcoating, acts as a complete absorber of incident light of a specific wavelength and polarized in the P plane. Despite lack of a physical explanation, the phenomenon was confirmed by experiment.
