Publication on near-field microscopy of coupled scatterers at THz frequencies

Accepted manuscript in Applied Physics Letters on THz microscopy of near-field coupled metallic resonators which exhibit electromagnetically induced transparency. In this work we map out electric near-fields in amplitude and phase, corresponding to the hybrid modes generated through near-field coupling between two resonant gold scatterers. The manuscript can be found at the following link:

Publication on plasmon-exciton-polariton lasing in Optica

Accepted manuscript on the first realization of plasmon-exciton polariton lasing, in a periodic array of metallic nanoparticles coupled to organic emitters. The measured lasing thresholds are comparable to those measured in high-Q microcavity systems, only now in a fully open and planar configuration. This result presents an important first step towards organic polaritonics exploiting the flexibility…
