Radiative Heat Transfer

Radiative Heat Transfer

Article: published in ACS Photonics by Juan Carlos Cuevas and Francisco J. García-Vidal, IFIMAC researchers and members of the Department of Theoretical Condensed Matter Physics. Thermal radiation is one of the most ubiquitous physical phenomena, and its...

Photon correlations of the light emitted by a two-level system change
as the resolution in the energy of the photons is increased. The
correlations obtained through our Monte Carlo technique (shown in
black) match perfectly with the prediction from the theory
frequency-resolved correlations (shown in red).

Frequency-resolved Monte Carlo

Article: published in Scientific Reports by Juan Camilo López Carreño, Elena del Valle, members of the Department of Theoretical Condensed Matter Physics. The Monte Carlo method, devised by Ulam in the 1940s, relies on...
