Abstract


We investigate the use of metamaterial surfaces in order to tailor the emission of infrared radiation. Multiple metamaterial sublattices permit broadband control. We find excellent agreement between the emissivity and absorptivity of metamaterial surfaces – as predicted by Kirchhoff’s law of thermal radiation.
