Strong enhancement of the radiative decay rate of emitters by single plasmonic nanoantennas.

A strong, 5-fold enhancement of the radiative decay rate from highly efficient fluorescent dye molecules around resonant optical nanoantennas, resulting in an increase of the internal quantum efficiency from 40% up to 53% for single antennas, and up to 59% for antenna clusters.

Multipolar radiation of quantum emitters with nanowire optical antennas

This work demonstrates controlled emission of a quantum dot into multipolar radiation through selective coupling to a linear nanowire antenna, establishing a basis for the controlled driving of fundamental modes in nanoantennas and metamaterials and for the development of innovative quantum nano-optics components with properties not found in nature.

Enhancement of luminescence of quantum emitters in epsilon-near-zero waveguides

We report a resonant enhancement of luminescence intensity from an ensemble of CdS/ZnS quantum dots embedded in a nanoscale rectangular photonic waveguide operating at the epsilon-near-zero regime.

Epsilon-near-Zero Modes and Surface Plasmon Resonance in Fluorine-Doped Cadmium Oxide Thin Films

In this report we demonstrate fluorine-doped CdO as a model infrared plasmonic material by virtue of its tunable carrier density, high mobility, and intense extreme-subwavelength plasmon–polariton

Nonradiating and radiating modes excited by quantum emitters in open epsilon-near-zero cavities

It is demonstrated that open ENZ cavities present the unique property of supporting nonradiating modes independently of the geometry of the external boundary of the cavity, which enables a dynamic control of the emission by, and the interaction between, QEs.

Transparent conductive oxides: Plasmonic materials for telecom wavelengths

We show that despite of low loss, silver and gold are not suitable for a variety of nanoplasmonic applications in the infrared range, which require compact modes in single-interface plasmonic

Conjugated Polymer/Metal Nanowire Heterostructure Plasmonic Antennas

Comprehensive optical characterization and theoretical modeling are employed to demonstrate plasmonic nanoantenna-mediated light emission from P3HT.

Niobium as Alternative Material for Refractory and Active Plasmonics

The development of stable compounds for durable optics is crucial for the future of plasmonic applications. Even though niobium is mainly known as a superconducting material, it can qualify as an

Temperature-Dependent Optical Properties of Plasmonic Titanium Nitride Thin Films

Due to their exceptional plasmonic properties, noble metals such as, gold and silver, have been the materials of choice for the demonstration of various plasmonic and nanophotonic phenomena. However,

Single-molecule spontaneous emission close to absorbing nanostructures

The spontaneous emission of a single molecule is substantially modified close to a metallic nanostructure. We study the spectral behavior of the radiative and nonradiative decay rates and of the
