Nano-émetteurs thermiques multi-spectraux

Abstract : Infrared sources are essential for local gas detection for civil applications (detection of pollutant and greenhouse gas) or military applications (detection of chemical and biological threats). They are also used as calibration targets for the development of multispectral infrared cameras. For these applications, the sources must be efficient and able to emit a specific light in a given direction. The aim of this thesis is to develop infrared thermal emitters with the following features: low cost with a compact volume, with a tunable spectral response and low losses, able to be juxtaposed on the same device. This work begins with the study of new resonant nanostructured materials, called metamaterials or metasurfaces according to the direction of the structuration, that spectrally and spatially control the emitted light up to the wavelength scale. This study relies on numerical simulations and experimental measurements and demonstrates the potential of these resonators as tunable thermal sources. However, due to the use of metals in these materials, their performance is limited by metal losses. The second study of this work is then to deal with these losses thanks to a field engineering in metamaterials, leading to very narrow spectral responses. The results on this loss control open up promising breakthroughs in the plasmonic and metamaterials field
