Metasurfaces, the two-dimensional (2D) counterpart of metamaterials, have recently attracted a great deal ofattention due to their amazing properties, including negative refraction, hyperbolic dispersion, and manipulationof the evanescent spectrum. In this work, a theory model is proposed for the near field radiative heat transfer(NFRHT) between two nanoparticles in the presence of an anisotropic metasurface. Specifically, the metasurfaceis modeled as an array of graphene strips (GS), which is an ideal platform to implement any metasurfacetopology, ranging from isotropic to hyperbolic propagation. The NFRHT between two nanoparticles aresignificantly amplified when they are placed in the proximity of the GS, and regulated over several ordersof magnitude. In this configuration, the anisotropic surface plasmon polaritons (SPPs) supported by the GSare excited and provide a new channel for the near-field energy transport. The dependence of conductancebetween two nanoparticles on the orientation, the structure parameters, the chemical potential of the GS, andthe interparticle or the particle-surface distances are analyzed by clearly identifying the characteristics of theanisotropic SPPs such as dispersion relations, propagation length, and decay length. These results demonstrate apowerful method to regulate the energy transport in particle systems, and create a way to explore the anisotropicoptical properties of the metasurface based on the measured heat transfer properties.
