We derive effective Hamiltonians for a single dipolar emitter coupled to a metal nanoparticle (MNP) with particular attention devoted to the role of losses. For small particles sizes, absorption dominates and a non-hermitian effective Hamiltonian describes the dynamics of the hybrid emitter-MNP nanosource. We discuss the coupled system dynamics in the weak and strong coupling regimes offering a simple understanding of the energy exchange, including radiative and non-radiative processes. We… 

Non-Hermitian approach for quantum plasmonics.

This work examines the limits of applicability of a simple non-Hermitian model for exciton/plasmon interactions in the presence of dissipation and dephasing and finds that optical spectra in the linear regime can be adequately described by this approach.

Collective strong coupling in a plasmonic nanocavity.

Cooperative emission in quantum plasmonic superradiance

Plasmonic superradiance originates from the plasmon mediated strong correlation that builds up between dipolar emitters coupled to a metal nanoparticle. This leads to a fast burst of emission so that

Molecular polaritons for controlling chemistry with quantum optics.

The basic physical principles and consequences of strong light-matter coupling common to molecular ensembles embedded in UV-visible or infrared cavities are described and the competition between the collective cooperative dipolar response of a molecular ensemble and local dynamical processes that molecules typically undergo are discussed.

Strong coupling as an interplay of quantum emitter hybridization with plasmonic dark and bright modes

Strong coupling between a single quantum emitter and an electromagnetic mode is one of the key effects in quantum optics. In the cavity QED approach to plasmonics, strongly coupled systems are

The quantization of plasmons has been analyzed mostly under the assumption of an infinite-sized bulk medium interacting with the electromagnetic field. We reformulate it for finite-size media, such
