NanoLEDs: bringing nanophotonics into solid-state lighting granted

Our proposal NanoLEDs: bringing nanophotonics into solid-state lighting, submitted together with AMOLF and Lumileds, has been granted in the High-Tech Systems and Materials call of NWO. In this project, we will quantitatively study the implementation of nanostructured surfaces designed to interact optimally with the emission of LEDs to boost blue light emission and white light…

Nonlinear Emission of Molecular Ensembles Strongly Coupled to Plasmonic Lattices with Structural Imperfections published in Physical Review Letters

We demonstrate nonlinear emission from molecular layers strongly coupled to extended light fields in arrays of plasmonic nanoparticles in the presence of structural imperfections. In contrast to recent observations of exciton-polariton lasing and condensation in organic systems, photonic modes play a minor role at the emission frequency in our system, and this emission has an…
