Design, fabrication and characterization of Mie resonance-based three-dimensional metamaterials for tuning thermal radiative properties

Demonstrate that Mie resonance-based
metamaterials with isotropic electromagnetic responses
can be used for tuning thermal
radiative properties.

Approach: Near-field
energy density
calculation performed by combining the effective medium theory with
fluctuational electrodynamics.


and Significance
metamaterials lead to resonance of the thermal near
field in the near infrared at low temperature. These
metamaterials will impact significantly low-grade
waste heat recovery via
thermophotovoltaic power generators.
