Plasmonic Cavities for Enhanced Spotaneous Emission
The modification of spontaneous emission, i.e. the Purcell effect, with optical cavities has been highly studied over the past 20 years as one of the most important goals for cavity quantum electrodynamics (cQED). The ...
Near-Field Optical Forces: Photonics, Plasmonics and the Casimir Effect
The coupling of macroscopic objects via the optical near-field can generate strong attractive and repulsive forces. Here, I explore the static and dynamic optomechanical interactions that take place in a geometry consisting ...
Plasmonics for surface-enhanced Raman scattering: from classical to quantum
Metallic nanostructures that employ localized surface plasmon resonances to capture or radiate electromagnetic waves at optical frequencies are termed "plasmonic optical antennas". These structures enhance light-matter ...
