Frenkel polaritons, hybrid light-matter quasiparticles, offer promises for the designing of new opto-electronic devices. However, their technological implementations are hindered by sensitivity to imperfections. Topology has raised as a way to circumvent defects and fabrication limitations. Here, we propose a lattice of cavities to realize the one-dimensional Su-Schrieffer-Heeger model (SSH) for topological Frenkel polaritons. By engineering the configuration of the cavities we demonstrate that…
