We investigate the design of metamaterial blueprints for impedance-matched (reflectionless) absorbers over nonplanar surfaces in connection with optical pseudo black holes. The presence of some fundamental constraints on the existence of reflectionless absorber media at nonplanar surfaces are discussed based on analytical properties of the associated constitutive tensors on the complex. (angular frequency) plane. In view of such constraints, some new metamaterial blueprints of near-reflectionless absorbers are suggested for integration into optical pseudo black hole devices.
