An analytical model of the spectrum of thermally stimulated surface plasmon polaritons (TSSPPs) coming to the edge of a linear conducting sample has been developed. It has been found that the spectrum of such TSSPPs obeys neither the Wien law nor the Stefan–Boltzmann law for thermal radiation. The maximum of this spectrum is shifted to the low-frequency region with respect to the spectrum of the absolutely black body, and the magnitude of the shift is proportional to the sample length. The plasmon nature of the intensity increment of thermal radiation from the edge of a plane face of a duralumin sample has been verified experimentally. It has been shown that the intensity and spectrum of this increment can be controlled both by the sample temperature and by the extension of the face.
