Dielectric nanophotonics became a hot topic during the last decade. Particularly, a lot of relevant studies were devoted to metasurfaces and their optical properties. Here we propose and numerically study the quadrumerbased silicon metasurface supporting magnetic octupole response. Specific meta-atoms allow to excite magnetic octupole moment in optical range without going beyond the diffraction limit. Comparing to a metasurface based on solid blocks of similar size, the quadrumer-based metasurface feature significant absorption enchantment and strong change of a reflection spectrum. Obtained results can be exploited in development of novel sensors, optical elements and energy harvesting devices.
