Abstract

In this work we demonstrate that a variety of J-aggregatescan be used to make organic materials that confine lighton the nanoscale. J-aggregate thin films were prepared byspin-coating a mixture of J-aggregate and a polymer ma-trix. A selection of J-aggregate thin films were chosenwith metal-like optical properties from green to red wave-lengths. The potential of these films for nanoscale light-confinement was then tested by coupling to the surface-exciton-polariton (SEP) mode of each film, using Fourierimaging spectroscopy.
