In high temperature and vacuum applications, when heat transfer is predominantly by radiation, the material’s surface texture is of substantial importance. Several micro and nanostructures designs have been proposed to enhance a material’s emissivity and its radiative coherence, as control of thermal emission is of crucial concern in the design of infrared sources, in electronic chip coolants, in high-efficiency photovoltaic cells, and in solar energy conversion.
