Proceedings Paper

Thermal-emission engineering with dynamically tunable materials (Conference Presentation)
Author(s): Mikhail A. Kats

Paper Abstract

This talk will describe our group’s advances and outline future work in the measurement and manipulation of thermal emission. First, I will discuss our efforts to improve thermal-emission metrology, especially for low-temperature thermal emitters and/or those with temperature-dependent emissivity. Then, I will describe our use of phase-transition materials including vanadium dioxide and the rare-earth nickelates to demonstrate new phenomena, including negative- and zero-differential thermal emittance, radiative thermal runaway, and thermo-dichroism. The talk will include discussion of opportunities of thermal-emission engineering for infrared camouflage and thermoregulation.
