We have proposed and fabricated a new mid-infrared reflector using the guided-mode resonance (GMR). The GMR reflector consists of subwavelength Ge grating on GaAs substrate with a low-refractive-index SiOx layer in between. With a total thickness of about 2 μm, a near-100% reflectivity at 8 μm has been obtained both theoretically and experimentally.
