Abstract

In this paper, we propose a specific algorithm based on the least-square method to predict the incidence angle insensitivity of a metamaterial absorber. The proposed algorithm was analyzed on a metamaterial absorber design with circular sectors on the top layer and a full copper cover on the bottom layer. We retrieved the parameters of inductance, capacitance, and conductance from the equivalent circuit of the metamaterial absorber at different incidence angles of 0°, 30°, 65°, and 70° under both transverse electric and transverse magnetic polarization. The complex impedances calculated from the optimal parameter retrieval are compared with the complex impedances from full-wave simulation at each incidence angle. The calculated and simulated results show excellent agreement, and the proposed algorithm can be used to design angle-insensitive metamaterial absorbers.
