Tamm plasmon/surface plasmon mode beating for spatially controlled plasmon generation

Clementine Symonds

institut Lumière Matière

Clementine Symonds is engineer from the Institut d’Optique graduated school and obtained her PhD at University Paris XI Orsay in 2003. Her PhD took place in the Laboratoire of Photonique and Nanostructures and concerned the development of modelocked external cavity VCSELs. Since 2005, she is assistant Professor in the team “Materials and Photonic Nanostructures” in the Institute of Light and Matter, University Claude Bernard Lyon 1. Her research activities concern the strong light-matter coupling between surface plasmons and organic materials, as well as the study of Tamm plasmon structures for the development of lasers and light emitting devices.


Tamm plasmons (TPs) are electromagnetic modes formed at the interface between a photonic structure and a metallic layer [1]. They present optical properties at the boundary between microcavity modes and surface plasmons (SP).... [ view full abstract ]
