Abstract. The dependences of the thermal radiation (TR) lines contrast and amplitude of the systems (photonic structure)/substrate on the optical characteristics of both the photonic structure and the substrate have been investigated theoretically and experimentally. As it has been ascertained, these dependences demonstrate non-monotonic behavior, and the characteristics of the system TR can both increase and decrease depending on the ratio of individual optical parameters of the system components. The results of theoretical research were confirmed by experimental studies of TR systems Ge/GaAs, Ge/GaAs/Al, GaAs/Au and GaAs/(opaque substrate). The results of the research can be used in the development of narrow-band emitters for the middle and far IR range, which can be applied in the optical infrared devices for a wide range of applications.

Keywords:photonic bandgap materials, one-dimensional photonic structures, thermal radiation, іnfrared sources.
