Special Issue in ACS Photonics

Last week a special issue on Strong Coupling of Molecules to Cavities appeared in ACS Photonics, following San Sebastian international workshop that took place in July 2017 and which was the first dedicated to this fascinating topic. This issue is presenting the state-of-the-art of the subject, with nearly 30 contributions, among which two papers from our group, mentionned in a previous post.

The editorial, written by the guest Editors Pr. Barnes, Pr. Aizpurua and Pr. Garcia-Vidal, kindly recalls that ” it was the pioneering work of Ebbesen and coworkers through a slew of fascinating results over the past five years or so that demonstrated the power of strong coupling to modify molecular and material properties.
