Conventional nanophotonic emission enhancement neglects excitonic phenomena of diffusion and annihilation. We go beyond the localized Purcell effect and identify the enhancement mechanisms to turn their detrimental impact into additional emission.

Shaping the fluorescent emission by lattice resonances in plasmonic crystals of nanoantennas.
It is demonstrated that the emission of light by fluorescent molecules in the proximity of periodic arrays of nanoantennas or plasmonic crystals can be strongly modified when the arrays are covered by a dielectric film, exhibiting an enhanced and directional emission.
Observation of rapid exciton-exciton annihilation in monolayer molybdenum disulfide.
The existence of efficient exciton-exciton annihilation, a four-body interaction, in Monolayer MoS2 is reported, a direct-gap two-dimensional semiconductor that exhibits strong electron-hole interactions, leading to the formation of stable excitons and trions.
