While nanoscale local enhancement of fluorescence is a well-studied phenomenon, enhancement of far-field radiation of large-area samples using nanostructures has been explored much less. In this work, we demonstrate planar nanostructures with exceptionally high far-field intensity enhancement factors and in addition show that the enhancement can be made controllable via the polarization state of the pump light. We also find that, counterintuitively, the Purcell effect plays only a small part in the observed far-field enhancement. The results of these studies can be applied, for example, in thin-film optical emitters, fluorescence sensors, and wide-field fluorescence microscopy.
