We numerically and experimentally investigated a strategy for property enhancement in the conventional metamaterial absorber, which includes periodic metal cut-wires at the front separated from the metal plane at the back by a dielectric layer. The third resonance in the meta-atom, which was induced by the magnetic multi-plasmon, was exploited to yield a perfect-absorption peak by manipulating the structural parameters. The electromagnetic properties were examined in comparison with the conventional strategy at the first resonance. By taking full advantage of the higher frequency of the multi-plasmonic resonance, the perfect absorption was demonstrated even in mid-infrared and visible regimes.
