Abstract

A metallic photonic crystal consisting of a triangular lattice of holes in a silicon layer coated with gold is fabricated at a lattice pitch of 3.75 mu m using conventional lithographic methods. The photonic crystal exhibits a deep reflection minimum and sharp thermal emission peak near the lattice spacing. Scattering matrix simulations agree well with measurements. This simple structure with a single patterned metallic layer has no emission sidebands and can be scaled to other lattice spacings to tune the wavelength of the absorption and emission peak.
