Abstract  As a two-dimensional (2D) material, monolayer MoS2 which limits its optical applications has a low absorption efficiency. In this paper, we propose a three-band perfect metamaterial absorber in the visible light range based on monolayer MoS2. The peak absorptivity of the structure at each resonance wavelength is nearly perfect, moreover, the light absorption of monolayer MoS2 is obviously enhanced at the three resonant wavelengths. The dielectric-dielectric-metal structure we designed produces the coupling of Fabry-Perot resonance and high-order diffraction guided-mode resonance at different absorption peaks, which has been proved by the slab waveguide theory. In addition, the multi-modal absorption phenomenon is explained by extracting the equivalent impedance. The results show that we can adjust the absorption peak wavelength by regulating the parameters of the structure. This structure not only provides an idea for enhancing the interaction between light and two-dimensional materials but also has potential applications for optical detection devices.
