Thomas Ebbesen - The Alchemy of Vacuum – Hybridizing Light and Matter

Hamburg Photon Science Colloquium
Strong coupling of light and matter can give rise to a multitude of exciting physical effects through the formation of delocalized hybrid light-matter states. After introducing the fundamental concepts, examples of modified properties under strong coupling, such as enhanced charge transport in organic semiconductors and non-radiative energy transfer, will be given to illustrate the broad potential of light-matter states.
