Bloch Surface Waves for MoS2 Emission Coupling and Polariton Systems
AbstractDue to their extraordinary quality factor and extreme sensitivity to surface perturbations, Bloch surface waves (BSW) have been widely investigated for sensing applications so far. Over the last few years, on-chip control of optical signals through BSW has experienced a rapidly-expanding interest in the scientific community, attesting to BSW’s position at the forefront towards on-chip optical operations. The backbone of on-chip optical devices requires the choice of integrated optical sources with peculiar optic/optoelectronic properties, the efficient in-plane propagation of the optical signal and the possibility to dynamic manipulate the signal through optical or electrical driving. In this paper, we discuss our approach in addressing these requirements. Regarding the optical source integration, we demonstrate the possibility to couple the MoS2 mono- and bi-layers emission—when integrated on top of a 1D photonic crystal—to a BSW. Afterward, we review our results on BSW-based polariton systems (BSWP). We show that the BSWPs combine long-range propagation with energy tuning of their dispersion through polariton–polariton interactions, paving the way for logic operations. View Full-Text
