Paper Abstract

We study the strong coupling of dye molecules to surface plasmons polaritons of thin silver films. The dispersion splits into three branches and demonstrates avoided crossing, characteristic of strong coupling. The dispersion is further modified, when gain is introduced, by strongly pumping the dye molecules. In a series of complementary experiments, we also show that dye molecules can be strongly coupled to localized plasmons modes of rough silver films and also multilayered hyperbolic metamaterials. Our preliminary results could pave the way for a new class of hybrid plasmonic materials and metamaterials.
