Accepted manuscript in ACS Photonics

In this manuscript we show that surface lattice resonances arising from different in-plane diffraction orders in the lattice can couple with molecular excitons, leading to plasmon-exciton-polaritons with distinct dispersion and thus different group velocities. This manuscript is part of the special issue on strong coupling that resulted from the workshop SCOM 2016.

Gabriel Lozano wins the Junior Researcher Physics prize of the Spanish Royal Society of Science

The prize was given for his “unique capacity to study fundamental physical phenomena at the highest level, giving rise to remarkable results and the ability of obtaining relevant applications from his research”. Gabriel was a postdoc in our group at AMOLF and Philips from 2011 until 2014. During this period he investigated the application of…
