Paper Abstract

We have developed thermal emitters of linearly polarized and narrow-band mid-infrared light based on highly controlled plasmon resonance in narrow and deep rectangular Au gratings. This optical source is a series of one-dimensional metal-insulator-metal optical cavities with a closed end. This characteristic results in the control of the thermal radiation, emitting a narrow infrared spectrum at a specific wavelength of 2.5-5.5 micro-meters. The wavelength is specified 100nm wide, 1000nm deep dimensions of the cavity were accurately manufactured. The maximum emittance reaches 0.90, and the FWHM/wavelength of the peak is as narrow as 0.13-0.23. Furthermore, we have demonstrated simple chemical analysis based on orthogonally polarized two-color infrared waves emitted from an integrated grating. This simple emitter is expected to play a key role in the infrared sensing technologies for analyzing our environment.
