Squeezing Light into Nanogaps: Plasmonics in the Sub-nm & Quantum Domains
Coupling between plasmonic nano-components generates strongly red-shifted resonances combined with intense local field amplification on the nanoscale. This allows directly seeing molecules as well as excitations in semiconductors. We have recently explored plasmonic coupling which can be tuned dynamically, through reliable bottom-up self-assembly. The crucial aspect of these systems is the extreme sensitivity to separation, and how quantum tunneling starts to be directly seen at room temperature in ambient conditions. We recently demonstrated how quantum plasmonics controls the very smallest space that light can be squeezed into. We also demonstrate the possibility to track few molecules using the extreme enhancements. We show how the new generation of 2D semiconductors can couple to such nano-scale gaps utilizes our nanoparticle on mirror geometry.
