Paper Abstract

We show that the optical modes of thin polymer slabs doped with J-aggregating dye molecules are strongly coupled exciton - waveguide photon modes. The hybridization appears as splitting in the dispersion relation of the fundamental transverse electric (TE) and transverse magnetic (TM) modes of the system. It is shown that these modes can be controlled by changing the thickness of the optical waveguide and by changing the concentration of the dye molecules. Leaky conical emission from the strongly coupled modes with radial and azimuthl polarizations is captured.
