CRC 951/2: HIOS – Coherent amplification and lasing of metal/organic hybrid structures (SP B02)


The central goal of our project is to establish surface plasmon polariton (SPP) directional propagation by a chiral hybrid inorganic/organic system (HIOS). For this a plasmonic antenna-wire system is assembled on a HIOS consisting of a two-dimensional transition metal dichalcogenide and matched conjugated organic molecules. In this model system we will study chirality and circular dichroism on a molecular scale in fundamental HIOS. Furthermore, we will explore concepts for ultra-compact chirality sensors.
