Multiple Fano Resonances Structure for Terahertz Applications

A new planar engineered material structure, which has multiple Fano resonances at the terahertz range of frequency, is presented. Starting with a double Fano resonance structure, it is shown that by considering several unit cells as a larger unit cell and creating new asymmetries in the super-cell, we can have five Fano resonances in one structure. Analysis of current distributions at resonance frequencies clarifies the origin of different resonances. We show that all of these resonances come from different arrangement of magnetic dipoles.
