An emitter device for emitting electromagnetic radiation is presented. The device includes a metallic patterned structure, and emitting media integral with the metallic patterned structure. The emitting media includes one or more emitters of omni-directional emission in nature wherein certain emission pattern. One or more parameters of the metallic patterned structure, that define a dispersion map thereof, are selected according to the emitting pattern such that the metallic patterned structure operates as a beam shaper creating resonant coupling of each emitter with a microscopic confined optical mode of the metallic patterned structure thereby enhancing by a predetermined enhancement factor the emission from the emitting media in a predetermined direction. The device thus provides predetermined directional beaming of output electromagnetic radiation wherein a predetermined angular propagation of the electromagnetic radiation emitted by the emitting media.
