We study the optical dynamics in complexes of aluminum nanoantennas coated with molecular J-aggregates and find that they provide an excellent platform for the formation of hybrid exciton-localized surface plasmons. Giant Rabi splitting of 0.4 eV, which corresponds to ∼10 fs energy transfer cycle, is observed in spectral transmittance. We show that the… (More)
In search of Botrytis cinerea cell death-inducing proteins, we found a xyloglucanase (BcXYG1) that induced strong necrosis and a resistance response in dicot plants. Expression of the BcXYG1 gene was strongly induced during the first 12 h post inoculation, and analysis of disease dynamics using PathTrack showed that a B. cinerea strain overexpressing BcXYG1… (More)
We study ultrafast all-optical switching of strongly coupled modes in nanoantenna-exciton complexes and show that both the reflection and transmission can be manipulated efficiently, thus opening the door for active and controllable nanoscale optical devices.
We use femtosecond transient absorption spectroscopy to study the temporal dynamics of strongly coupled exciton-plasmon polaritons in metasurfaces of aluminum nanoantennas coated with J-aggregate molecules. Compared with the thermal nonlinearities of aluminum nanoantennas, the exciton-plasmon hybridization introduces strong ultrafast nonlinearities in the… (More)
We demonstrate experimentally the use of ordered arrays of nanoantennas for polarization controlled plasmonic beam shaping and excitation. Rod- and cross-shaped nanoantennas are used as local point-like sources of surface plasmon polaritons, and the desired phase of the generated plasmonic beam is set directly through their spatial arrangement. The… (More)
Apoptosis-like programmed cell death (A-PCD) is a universal process common to all types of eukaryotic organisms. Because A-PCD-associated processes are conserved, it is possible to define A-PCD by a standard set of markers. Many of the popular methods to measure A-PCD make use of fluorescent ligands that change in intensity or cellular localization during… (More)
We find that aluminum nanoantennas provide an excellent platform for the formation of hybrid exciton-localized surface plasmon modes. We show that the hybrid states can be polarized, and that they enhance the photoluminesence of the system.
The measurement of disease development is integral in studies on plant-microbe interactions. To address the need for a dynamic and quantitative disease evaluation, we developed PathTrack© , and used it to analyse the interaction of plants with Botrytis cinerea. PathTrack© is composed of an infection chamber, a photography unit and software that produces… (More)
