Cavity-Modulated Proton Transfer Reactions
Proton transfer is ubiquitous in many fundamental chemical and biological processes, and the ability to modulate and control the proton transfer rate would have a major impact on numerous quantum


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.
Manipulating optical nonlinearities of molecular polaritons by delocalization
Control of vibrational polariton coherent nonlinearities are reported by manipulation of macroscopic parameters such as cavity longitudinal length or molecular concentration by exploiting nonlinear dephasing in the mid-infrared.
Quantum well excitons in semiconductor microcavities : unified treatment of weak and strong coupling regimes
Abstract The system of one or several quantum wells embedded in a planar semiconductor Fabry-Perot microcavity with distributed Bragg reflectors is studied in the framework of both a semiclassical
Quantum Optics Model of Surface-Enhanced Raman Spectroscopy for Arbitrarily Shaped Plasmonic Resonators
We present a self-consistent quantum optics approach to calculating the surface-enhanced Raman spectrum of molecules coupled to arbitrarily shaped plasmonic systems. Our treatment is intuitive to
Combining density functional theory with macroscopic QED for quantum light-matter interactions in 2D materials
DFT is combined with macroscopic quantum electrodynamics to show Purcell enhancements reaching 107 for intersubband transitions in few-layer transition metal dichalcogenides sandwiched between graphene and a perfect conductor, laying the foundation for practical ab initio-based quantum treatments of light-matter interactions in realistic nanostructured materials.
Multi-level quantum Rabi model for anharmonic vibrational polaritons.
A multilevel quantum Rabi model to study vibrational polaritons beyond the rotating-wave approximation is derived and it is shown that the bond length of a vibratory polariton at a given energy is never greater than the bondlength of a Morse oscillator with the same energy.
Single-molecule strong coupling at room temperature in plasmonic nanocavities
Statistical analysis of vibrational spectroscopy time series and dark-field scattering spectra provides evidence of single-molecule strong coupling, opening up the exploration of complex natural processes such as photosynthesis and the possibility of manipulating chemical bonds.
Novel Nanostructures and Materials for Strong Light–Matter Interactions
Quantum mechanical interactions between electromagnetic radiation and matter underlie a broad spectrum of optical phenomena. Strong light-matter interactions result in the well-known vacuum Rabi
Properties of quantum dots coupled to plasmons and optical cavities.
This perspective reviews the basic physics of emitter-cavity coupling in the weak-to-strong coupling regimes, describes common architectures for these systems, and lists possible applications (in particular, photochemistry), with a focus on the advantages and issues associated with using QDs as the emitters.
Nano‐Cavity QED with Tunable Nano‐Tip Interaction
Quantum state control of two-level emitters is fundamental for many information processing, metrology, and sensing applications. However, quantum-coherent photonic control of solid-state emitters has
