ABSTRACT
We theoretically investigate the nonradiative heat transfer between two photonic crystals separated by a small gap in nonequilibrium thermal situation. We predict that the surface Bloch states coupling supported by these media can make heat exchanges larger than those measured at the same separation distance between two massive homogeneous materials made with the elementary components of photonic crystals. These results could find broad applications in near-field technologies.
