CRC 951 I: HIOS - Plasmonic nanoantennae as efficient input/output ports for fundamental opto-electronic elements based on inorganic/organic interfaces (Project B1)


The goal is to study plasmon-enhanced transfer processes at HIOS interfaces. Three processes are considered: (i) Transfer of photons to/from organic molecules, i.e., enhancement of fluorescence and absorption via plasmonic antenna structures; (ii) plasmonic enhancement of exciton transfer across an inorganic/organic interface; (iii) transfer of energy between separated organic molecules along plasmonic wires. A peculiar approach in this project is the construction of precisely arranged model systems of individual conjugated organic molecules coupled to plasmonic antennas and waveguides using scanning probe nanomanipulation techniques.
