Paper Abstract

We report on strong coupling between surface plasmon polaritons and Rhodamine 6G molecules at room temperature. As a reference to compare with, we first determine the dispersion curve of (uncoupled) surface plasmon polaritons on a 50 nm thick film of silver. Consequently, we determine the dispersion curve of surface plasmon polaritons strongly coupled to Rhodamine 6G molecules, which exhibits vacuum Rabi splitting. Furthermore, we present spontaneous emission spectra of Rhodamine 6G on silver, which are shown to change with detector angle due to surface plasmon polariton generation by Rhodamine 6G molecules.
