Plasmonics have been used for decades mainly for sensing applications. In the last few years, there has been a renewed interest to explore Quantum Plasmonics, where atoms/molecules are driven by plasmons. This generated a new photonic platform for exploring light-matter interactions. The highlight being the demonstration of single molecule strong coupling with plasmons at room temperature.

I will start my talk by explaining what plasmons are, provide an overview of the most recent work in the field of Quantum Plasmonics and then present my work that focuses on understanding the strong coupling dynamics of emitters in plasmonic nano-cavities. I will explain how and why one can achieve room temperature strong coupling of a single molecule in a plasmonic cavity, demonstrate the unique properties of nano-cavity plasmons and if time permits how one can access specific chemical bonds within a single molecule using plasmons.
