Abstract
A two-dimensional array of a microcavity with a high aspect ratio is made o n a Cr-coated Si surface using the micromachining technology. The thermal e mission spectra whose wavelength is close to the dimension of cavity apertu re (5 mum) are measured on samples with a different aspect ratio. The clear selective emission bands corresponding to the two-dimensionally confined e lectromagnetic modes are demonstrated experimentally. It is found that the low emissivity of the base material is essential to obtain the high spectra l selectivity of thermal radiation. The direction and polarization properti es are also examined. The dominant peaks of the emission spectra can be exp lained by a simple cavity resonator model. (C) 2001 American Institute of P hysics.
