Abstract

We report electrically driven narrow-linewidth blackbody emission from carbon-nanotube with Fabry-Perot microcavities. We fabricated two types of devices with microcavities consisting of either gold mirrors or distributed Bragg reflectors (DBR). Gold-mirror microcavity devices exhibit blackbody emission with narrowed full-width at half-maximum of ∼50 nm in contrast to the broad normal blackbody emission spectrum. The spectra from these devices can be explained by theoretical calculations accounting for the temperature-dependent intrinsic blackbody spectra and transmittance spectrum of the microcavity. Moreover, the DBR microcavity devices show a narrower resonant peak inside the photonic bandgap, compared with the gold-mirror microcavity device.
