We show that the well-known relationship between temperature and thermal radiation can be decoupled in a fully passive and reversible way using the phase transition of samarium nickelate. Our sample features temperature-independent thermally emitted power in the long-wave infrared from 90 to 120 °C, making it promising for camouflage applications.
