Seminar: Controlling dipole-dipole interactions with a photonic environmentSpeaker: Zubin Jacob Location: 402 N. Blackford St, Indianapolis, IN 46202 LD 010
Dipole-dipole interactions between atoms and molecules give rise to a myriad of phenomena ranging from Casimir forces to Forster Resonance Energy Transfer. At low temperatures, controlled dipole-dipole interactions between atoms can implement quantum gates and simulators whereas at room temperature such interactions can help boost incoherent energy transfer. This talk focusses on photonic approaches employing plasmonic metamaterials to control dipole-dipole interactions at room temperature. We experimentally demonstrate enhanced range and efficiency of dipole-dipole interactions through broadband engineering of the Coulombic near-field.
