Abstract: The development of the theory of metasurfaces has shown great potential for their use in sensory applications. However, in infrared and visible parts of spectrum the metallic-inclusion-based metasurfaces often face the application obstacles associated with Ohmic losses in metals and fabrication difficulties. Possible solution is to use all-dielectric structures instead of metallic ones. In this study, an all-dielectric resonant metasurface is investigated as a platform for sensory applications in the infrared range. The metasurface is made of an array with unit cell in the form of a single subwavelength dielectric disk having a round eccentric penetrating hole. Resonant states in the transmitted spectra of the metasurface are identified from the comparison with modes inherent in the individual cylindrical dielectric resonators. Correlation between an asymmetry in the geometry of unit cell and formation of the high-quality- factor trapped mode is established. In order to demonstrate the ability of the designed metasurface to serve as a sensor platform, an experimental characterization of the trapped mode is performed in the microwave frequency range.


Keywords: Sensor platforms, Photonic structures, Metasurfaces, Metamaterials, Microwave characterization.
