2014 MRS Fall Meeting


L8.02 - Graphene Plasmon-Modulated Infrared Radiation via Emissivity Control


Dec 3, 2014 9:00am ‐ Dec 3, 2014 9:15am

Description

We demonstrate the plasmonically modulated infrared radiation by control of surface emissivity through carrier density modulation in graphene nanoresonators on thin silicon nitride substrates. We interpret the emissivity control in terms radiation from plasmonic low Q graphene nanoresonators that serve as antennas coupling radiation to free space. The nanoresonators exhibit narrow spectral emission features that can be varied in frequency and intensity by changing the graphene carrier density. At 250 C, we show that the emissivity at 7 microns of the nanoresonator-covered surface can be varied by 2% via changes in carrier density of only 3.1 x1012cm-2, and we demonstrate that the total power modulation approaches 50pW in a 50 micron x50 micron area in 100 cm-1 bandwidth. Through finite element modeling, we show that the origin of this radiation can be traced to the microscopic loss channels of the graphene plasmons. Finally, we will discuss the implications of these results on thermal power management and the possibility of ultrafast control of blackbody radiative emission.
