Paper Abstract

Plasmonic structures can be advantageous for single photon sources due notably to their large Purcell factor over a relatively large frequency range. Here, we compare thin disks and optical patch antenna configurations. We analyze the physics involved in the modification of the Purcell factor, and discuss how the structures can be seen as plasmonic cavities. We also discuss briefly the implications for single photon sources.
