Strong light-matter coupling with Si nanoparticles

In our recently published manuscript, we demonstrate the strong coupling of electric and magnetic resonances in arrays of silicon nanoparticles with excitons in organic layers. This manuscript published in ACS Photonics has been selected by the journal as one of the most relevant results published over the past 12 months and highlighted during the celebration…

Crowdfunding for Remote Setups

During the lockdown months of March, April, and May all the labs got closed and the experimental research went into standby. All? not really. Niels van Hoof could continue his work from home with his fully remotely controlled setup. Niels is now writing the first and only scientific manuscript with experiments that were done during…

Light–Matter Coupling Strength Controlled by the Orientation of Organic Crystals in Plasmonic Cavities

In our just accepted manuscript in the Journal of Physical Chemistry C, we demonstrate the coupling of excitons in tetracene crystals to optical modes in open cavities formed by anisotropic arrays of plasmonic nanoparticles and investigate the coupling strength as a function of the alignment to the cavity field. This alignment is realized by rotating…

Bootcamp Hendrix Genetics

From 11th to 13th of February, the second PhotonDelta Application Bootcamp was held at TU/e. Niels van Hoof participated as an expert in the field, trying to come up with solutions for Hendrix Genetics with the use of integrated photonics. The challenge was set on measuring conventional egg properties. The company was enthusiastic about the…
