Abstract

This review covers the recent progress made in the nanophotonic devices-based daytime passive radiative coolers. The radiative cooling capabilities along with the structural description of various natural species are discussed. The design principle along with key characteristics of the omnidirectional solar reflectors as well as thermal adiators is discussed in detail. Several analogues planner one-dimensional and two-dimensional photonic nanostructures and their current state-of-the-art techniques have been discussed. For each kind of the photonic structure, the novelty, measurement principle, and their respective daytime radiative cooling capability are presented. The reported works and the corresponding results predict the possibility to realize an efficient and commercially viable radiator for passive radiative cooling applications.
