IR normal transmission and angular reflection spectra are studied for lamellar silicon grating-wafer structures. The grating dimensions are comparable with the radiation wavelengths 2.2-22 μm. The spectra were measured using the FTIR system. Numerical simulations of the spectra were carried out using an operator-vector version of rigorous-coupled wave analysis. The theoretical results are in agreement with the measured spectra. The effect of grating structure on the manifestation of two inherent light absorption mechanisms of bulk silicon-interstitial oxygen vibrations and lattice phonons-is discussed. The results indicate the possibility of obtaining a narrow spectral absorber.
