Coherent control of thermal emission from SiC due to coupled resonant cavity structure Conference Paper uri icon


  • (1.4mrad), is the signature to the high spatial coherence length of the thermal radiation, 1.66mm (8.3mm). Note that this value is significantly higher than the propagation length of SPPs on a flat SiC-vacuum interface í 640 microns. 3. Conclusion By utilizing periodic coupled resonant cavities, a very high coherent thermal source can be designed particularly in spectral bands where laser source is not available, with no limitation of the coherency imposed by the delocalized surface waves. Controlling the emission, or absorption, behavior of a system is a substantial role in radiative energy transfer and energy conversion. Furthermore, the high resonance structure may be implemented in absorption mechanism for infrared detectors and filters … 4. References: [1] J.-J Greffet, R. Carminati, K. Joulain, J.-P. Mulet, S.
