Abstract

By means of characteristic matrix method, we make a theoretical investigation on the properties of thermal emission from one-dimensional conjugated photonic crystals heterojunction embedded with graphene. We find that the emissivity plots show sharp spectral peaks and narrow antenna-like angular lobes which show the excellent temporal coherence and spatial coherence. By optimizing the parameters, a close-to-unity emissivity can be achieved in our proposed structure. Furthermore, we demonstrate that the emissivity peak wavelength and emissivity values can be tuned by changing the chemical potential of graphene layer and the center wavelength of conjugated photonic crystals. The study shows that our proposed structure may find great application in infrared spectrometers and infrared gas sensors.
