The Bloch Surface Wave (BSW) is an evanescent electromagnetic mode found on the surface of a Distributed Bragg Reflector multilayer. This surface mode can be used for channeling the emission of fluorescent material. As one intriguing example, when a MoS2 monolayer is deposited on top of a photonic crystal, its emission is channeled into the BSW. The MoS2 radiation can efficiently spread long distances, in the plane of the device, thanks to the high group velocity in evanescent mode. Such a finding paves the way for an on-chip propagation control and manipulation of transition metal dichalcogenide emissions. View this paper
