Abstract

We show that there is no contradiction between the results presented by Pan [Opt.  Lett.   25, 369(2000)] and the 1/L2 dependence of the radiative energy flux between two half-spaces separated by a small vacuum gap of width L obtained by Polder and Van Hove [Phys.  Rev.  B 4, 3303 (1971) ] and by Loomis and Maris [Phys.  Rev.  B 50, 18517 (1994)].

Radiative heat-transfer coefficient hRL between gold and gallium arsenide at λ=6.2 μm and T=300 K: (a) ϵAu=-1746+178i, nAsGa=3.3, (b) ϵAu=-1746+178i, nAsGa=3.3+0.001i. The inset shows the normalized radiative heat-transfer coefficient hR/hBBRL for the same configuration (hBBB is the radiative heat-transfer coefficient of two blackbodies exchanging energy only by propagating waves).
