Abstract

We report measurements on the angular radiation pattern from an array of dye molecules embedded in a polymethylmethacrylate film deposited on a dielectric hemispherical lens. The radiation pattern is both highly structured and directed, with most of the power being radiated into the media having the higher refractive index. We also present a simulation of the far-field radiation pattern of a dipole embedded in a thin dielectric layer, which apparently has not been investigated before. The simulation matches the experimental results rather well.
