This review provides a brief introduction to the physics of coupled exciton-plasmon systems, the theoretical description and experimental manifestation of such phenomena, followed by an account of the state-of-the-art methodology for the numerical simulations of such phenomena and supplemented by a number of FORTRAN codes, by which the interested reader can introduce himself/herself to the practice of such simulations. Applications to CW light scattering as well as transient response and… 
Near-field analysis of strong coupling between localized surface plasmons and excitons
We simulate the near-field effects of strong coupling between molecular excitons and localized surface plasmons, supported by aluminum nanodisks. The simulations are done using a simple model of a
Electronic Structure Effects in the Coupling of a Single Molecule with a Plasmonic Antenna
Miniaturization of plasmonic devices and the possibility to address single-molecule quantum emitters (QEs) in plasmonic cavities allow one to approach a regime where the characteristic sizes of the
Dynamic theory of nanophotonic control of two-dimensional semiconductor nonlinearities
We introduce a Maxwell-Bloch simulation approach which self-consistently combines a microscopic description of the carrier and polarization dynamics of a transition-metal-dichalcogenide (TMDC)
Tunable plexciton dynamics in electrically biased nanojunctions
Strong coupling between resonantly coordinated plasmonic modes and excitonic states from quantum emitters or analogous two-level systems has led to the realization of pronounced plexciton dynamics.
Room-temperature strong coupling at the nanoscale achieved by inverse design
: Room-temperature strong coupling between plasmonic nanocavities and monolayer semiconductors is a prominent path towards efficient, integrated light-matter interactions. However, designing such

A powerful hybrid FDTD–TDDFT method is used to study the interaction between classical plasmons of a gold bowtie nanoantenna and quantum plasmons of graphene nanoflakes (GNFs) placed in the narrow
Fourier-plane investigation of plasmonic bound states in the continuum and molecular emission coupling
Abstract Bound states in the continuum (BICs) or trapped modes can provide an important new avenue for strong light confinement via destructive interference. Dielectric photonic structures have been

Rigorous electrodynamical simulations based on the nonlinear Drude model are performed to investigate the influence of strong coupling on harmonic generation by periodic metal gratings. It is shown
Ensembles of single-molecule picocavities as nonlinear optical metamaterials
Strong coupling with single molecules in plasmonic picocavities has emerged as a resource for room-temperature quantum control with nanoscale light. Tip-based nanoprobes can measure the local


Plasmonic opals: observation of a collective molecular exciton mode beyond the strong coupling
This paper demonstrates both experimentally and theoretically how to manipulate strong coupling between the Bragg-plasmon mode supported by an organo-metallic array and molecular excitons in the form of J-aggregates dispersed on the hybrid structure.
Dynamic optical response of an excitonic quantum dot studied by solving the self-consistent Maxwell-Schrodinger equations nonperturbatively
Semiconductor quantum dots and metal nanoparticles feature very strong light-matter interactions, which has led to their use in many photonic applications such as photodetectors, biosensors,
Effect of localized surface-plasmon mode on exciton transport and radiation emission in carbon nanotubes.
It is found that the radiation distribution is dominated by SP emission for a SWNT-MT separation of a few tens of nanometers due to the fast SP emission rate, whereas the exciton-SP coherences can cause its rotation.
Optical Response of Hybrid Plasmon–Exciton Nanomaterials in the Presence of Overlapping Resonances
We consider a hybrid plasmon–exciton system comprising a resonant molecular subsystem and three Au wires supporting a dipole mode that can be coupled to a dark mode in controllable fashion by
