Optical nanoantennas are widely used to build absorbing metasurfaces with applications in photodetection, solar cells, and sensing. Most of the time, the nanoantennas are assembled as a periodic distribution, but there have been various works where disordered arrays are used, either to get rid of diffraction orders or due to a fabrication process that prevents any determined distribution. Here, we investigate both theoretically and experimentally the unavoidable scattering introduced by such disorders. By introducing a perturbation on the positions of 1D arrays of metal-insulator-metal (MIM) nanoantennas, the light is scattered rather than increasingly absorbed. The scattering occurs only in the plane of incidence and on a given spectral range. We show how this scattering can be manipulated from 0% to 55% of the incoming light.
