Hierarchically porous polymer coatings for highly efficient passive daytime radiative cooling | Science
New cheapish polymer coating to make a narrowband IR emitter that pumps through the LWIR atmospheric transmission window. So something can be cooled by exposing it to the sky.

Hundred-fold enhancement in far-field radiative heat transfer over the blackbody limit | Nature
So when the gap between surfaces is 25nm, you can get much higher radiative heat transfer. But if you are that close, why not go conductive?

Radiative cooling of solar absorbers using a visibly transparent photonic crystal thermal blackbody
Uses the IR window reradiation trick to cool an object by cooling towards space, as space is a heatsink.

Passive radiative cooling below ambient air temperature under direct sunlight : Nature : Nature Publishing Group
Interesting mixed material which re-emits heat at atmospheric IR transparency windows, effectively becoming a passive cooler. So an external radiator on earth covered with this paint can get pretty cool.
