Space-variant polarization manipulation of enhanced nondirectional thermal emission in a narrow spectral peak is presented. The emission is attributed to surface phonon-polariton excitation from space-variant subwavelength SiO2 gratings. Polarization manipulation was obtained by discretely controlling the local orientation of the grating. We experimentally demonstrated thermal emission in an axially symmetric polarization distribution. Theoretical calculations based on rigorous coupled-wave analysis are presented along with experimental results.

    The dispersion characteristics of magnetoinductive (MI) waves for a one-dimensional array of metamaterial elements are investigated for the case where the element properties vary in a bi-periodic manner. It is shown that, by this means (analogously to acoustic waves in a solid), a variety of...
