What is it about?

We report on the surface polariton waves made of hybrid photonic and organic exciton modes.

Why is it important?

This is the first observation of the strong coupling between the Bloch surface waves, BSW (light counterpart) and the excitonic resonance of a thin organic layer (matter counterpart). Organic excitons allow to have the polariton at room temperature. The BSW mode allows to have a fast-propagating wave on a free standing surface which is at disposal for easy patterning. These features (temperature, velocity, accessibility) are fundamental towards realization of polaritonic devices.
