Nonreciprocal Thermal Radiation Based on Fibonacci Quasi-Periodic Structures

To violate Kirchhoff’s law is very important in the areas of thermal radiation. However, due to the weak nonreciprocity in natural materials, it is necessary to engineer novel structures to break the

Wide-angle and broadband nonreciprocal thermal emitter with cascaded dielectric and Weyl semimetal grating structure

The recent review [Phys. Rev. Appl. 18, 027001 (2022)] has considered that the existing schemes of nonreciprocal radiation are greatly limited by the narrow-operated bandwidth and small angular

Strong nonreciprocal radiation with topological photonic crystal heterostructure

A nonreciprocal thermal emitter, which consists of a magnetic Weyl semimetal embedded in a topological photonic crystal, is proposed and investigated. An emitter exhibits strong nonreciprocal

MXenes as Alternative Plasmonic Coatings on 1D Photonic Crystals Platforms for Tamm Plasmon Polaritons

New materials are of essential importance for the advancement of nanophotonics and nanoplasmonics. Numerous electromagnetic modes, especially various evanescent surface waves, prove themselves useful

Absorption characteristics of a typical photonic crystal unidirectional absorber under graphene modulation

Abstract. Unidirectional absorbers have potential applications in infrared detection, energy conversion, and solar energy harvesting. In this work, the absorption properties of a typical photonic

Does non-reciprocity break the Shockley–Queisser limit in single-junction solar cells?

The efficiency of single-junction solar cells is bounded by the Shockley–Queisser limit of 41%. However, standard derivation for this limit constrains the system to be reciprocal, and what

Broadband Nonreciprocal Thermal Emission



Axion-Field-Enabled Nonreciprocal Thermal Radiation in Weyl Semimetals.

It is shown that the axion electrodynamics in magnetic Weyl semimetals can be used to construct strongly nonreciprocal thermal emitters that near completely violate Kirchhoff's law over broad angular and frequency ranges, without requiring any external magnetic field.

New spin-resolved thermal radiation laws for nonreciprocal bianisotropic media

A chiral absorber of light can emit spin-polarized (circularly polarized) thermal radiation based on Kirchhoff’s law which equates spin-resolved emissivity with spin-resolved absorptivity for

Large nonreciprocal absorption and emission of radiation in type-I Weyl semimetals with time reversal symmetry breaking

The equality between the spectral, directional emittance and absorptance of an object under local thermal equilibrium is known as Kirchhoff's law of radiation. The breakdown of Kirchhoff's law of

The Promising Structure to Verify the Kirchhoff’s Law for Nonreciprocal Materials

Recent theoretical work has proved that conventional Kirchhoff’s law does not hold for every material and only holds for reciprocal materials. Zhang et al. have derived the generalized Kirchhoff’s
