The SiC micro/nano-scale structure has advantages for enhancing nonreciprocal absorptance for photovoltaic use due to the magneto optical effect. In this work, we demonstrate the near-field radiative transfer between two aligned SiC nanowires/plates under different magnetic field intensities, in which Lorentz-Drude equations of the dielectric constant tensor are proposed to describe the dielectric constant as a magnetic field applied on the SiC structure. The magnetic field strength is qualified in this study. Using local effective medium theory and the fluctuation-dissipation theorem, we evaluate the near-field radiation between SiC nanowires with different filling ratios and gap distances under an external magnetic field. Compared to the near-field heat flux between two SiC plates, the one between SiC nanowires can be enhanced with magnetic field intensity, a high filling ratio, and a small gap distance. The electric field intensity is also presented for understanding light coupling, propagation, and absorption nature of SiC grating under variable incidence angles and magnetic field strengths. This relative study is useful for thermal radiative design in optical instruments.
