Abstract

Ag/dielectric/Ag-type plasmonic thermal emitters (PTEs) following a hexagonal lattice were fabricated, and their plasmonic emission spectrums were characterized with Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy. Nanoamorphous carbon (NAC) is used as a dielectric layer. Doping NAC with various materials over a wide range of levels enables control of the resistivity of the composite films where MoSi 2 was selected as the dopant. Wavelength tuning in the range of 4 7 μm is demonstrated by changing the conductivity of the composite films as well as the lattice periodicity of the hexagonal lattice. We also tested the mechanical stability of the PTEs under mechanical strains.
