Abstract  We applied the finite element method to calculate the extinction spectrum of single hyperbolic hexagonal boron nitride (h-BN) nanodisk. We show that the hyperbolic h-BN nanodisk exhibits two extinction mechanisms in the mid-infrared region. The volume confined phonon polaritons resonances of the nanodisk give rise to a series of weak extinction peaks. The localized surface phonon polaritons lead to a robust dipolar extinction, and the extinction peak position is tunable by varying the size of the h-BN nanodisk. These findings reveal the mechanisms of the interaction between light and resonant h-BN nanodisk, which are essential for h-BN related opto-electromagnetic applications.
