Space-variant polarization manipulation of a thermal emission by a SiO/sub 2/subwavelength grating supporting surface phonon-polariton Conference Paper uri icon

abstract

  • Abstract: Space-variant polarization manipulation of thermal emission in a narrow spectral- peak is presented. The emission is attributed to surface phonon-polariton excitation from space-variant subwavelength SiO/sub 2/gratings. We experimentally demonstrated thermal emission in an axially symmetric polarization distribution.
