At this year’s Molecular Plasmonics conference at Leibniz Institute of Photonics Technology, Jena, fourth year PGR Kishan Menghrajani presented his work on ‘Molecular vibrational strong coupling in a metal-clad microcavity below cut-off‘ .
The meeting, held from 23rd to 25th May, was focused on bioanalytical and nanophotonic applications of plasmonic effects at nanoscale metal structures, utilizing the phenomenon of localized surface plasmon resonance (LSPR). This included e.g. phenomenon occuring at molecular components due to local field enhancement effects, interactions with fluorescent dyes, sub-wavelength apertures as well as comparisons of simulations with experimental results. Also effects based on electron release and subsequent processes like catalyses was discussed.
