Controlled spontaneous emission in plasmonic whispering gallery antennas
Appl. Phys. Lett. , Volume 99 - Issue Article number: 231112 p. 1- 3
We present a plasmonic whispering gallery nanoantenna doped with an ATTO680 dye that shows cavity-modified spontaneous emission. The plasmonic ring antenna consists of a circular groove cavity in a single-crystal Au surface that sustains resonances with different azimuthal and radial mode order. We observe spectral reshaping of the dye emission that can be tuned over a broad band by varying the cavity resonance conditions.
