Electrically tunable organic-inorganic hybrid polaritons with monolayer WS2

Lucas Flatten

University of Oxford

Lucas Flatten obtained his undergraduate Physics degree in 2012 from Albert-Ludwigs University in Freiburg, Germany. Over the course of his studies he worked at the Fraunhofer Institute for Solar Energy (ISE), where he pursued research on thin-film solar cells. Currently he studies for a DPhil in Jason Smith's Pphotonics Nanomaterials Group (PNG) at the University of Oxford, investigating the light-matter interaction at the nanoscale. His field of research includes photonic nanostructures such as open microcavities, two-dimensional materials and single quantum emitters.


We demonstrate the formation of hybrid organic-inorganic polaritons created through the simultaneous coupling of a J-aggregate dye and a CVD grown tungsten-disulphide monolayer to a confined optical microcavity mode.... [ view full abstract ]
