Heat flow in thin films via surface phonon-polaritons

We present a calculation of the thermally generated electromagnetic flux propagating along the in-plane direction of a polar, thin film. The approach is based on fluctuational electrodynamics and the fluctuation-dissipation theorem. We find that for silicon carbide films between 5 nm and 100 nm thic...
