Abstract:

ABSTRACT: It is proposed to develop an innovative structured class of devices with directive emission and transmission that utilize metamaterial concepts. The proposed structures will be thin films with electromagnetic responses that can be systematically manipulated in the infrared region to enable directionally tailored emissivity and transmissivity. The team has demonstrated nearly perfect absorbers in the IR range. The technology is compatible with existing commercial large area fabrication. BENEFIT: The proposed effort will enable fabrication of large area, light weight devices with directionally tailored emission and transmission. Such devices can be used for a range of IR applications, both civilian and military including thermal management, imaging applications, and others.
