An incandescent metasurface for quasimonochromatic polarized mid-wave infrared emission modulated beyond 10 MHz

Abstract : Incandescent sources such as hot membranes and globars are widely used for mid-infrared spectroscopic applications. The emission properties of these sources can be tailored by means of resonant metasurfaces: control of the spectrum, polarization, and directivity have been reported. For detection or communication applications, fast temperature modulation is desirable but is still a challenge due to thermal inertia. Reducing thermal inertia can be achieved using nanoscale structures at the expense of a low absorption and emission crosssection. Here, we introduce a metasurface that combines nanoscale heaters to ensure fast thermal response and nanophotonic resonances to provide large monochromatic and polarized emissivity. The metasurface is based on platinum and silicon nitride and can sustain high temperatures. We report a peak emissivity of 0.8 and an operation up to 20 MHz, six orders of magnitude faster than commercially available hot membranes.
