  • The pursuit of nanoscale photonics and molecular optoelectronics has stimulated a lot of interests in scanning tunneling microscope (STM) induced molecular emission. In this work, we have introduced a full quantum mechanical approach instead of the previous semiclassical theory to consider the quantized surface plasmon modes in this system. By considering the mutual interactions between a single molecule and the quantized surface plasmon, we have studied the molecular electroluminescence from STM tunnel junctions. Due to the coupling to the surface plasmons, the spontaneous emission rate and the fluorescence intensity of themolecule are both enormously enhanced. In particular, we show that when the radiative decay rate becomes comparable to the vibrational damping rate, hot-electroluminescence can be observed. All these findings are believed to be instructive for further developments of both molecular electronics and photonics.

Abstract: The pursuit of nanoscale photonics and molecular optoelectronics has stimulated a lot of interests in scanning tunneling microscope (STM) induced molecular emission. In this work, we have introduced a full quantum mechanical approach instead of the previous semiclassical theory to consider the quantized surface plasmon modes in this system. By considering the mutual interactions between a single molecule and the quantized surface plasmon, we have studied the molecular electroluminescence from STM tunnel junctions. Due to the coupling to the surface plasmons, the spontaneous emission rate and the fluorescence intensity of themolecule are both enormously enhanced. In particular, we show that when the radiative decay rate becomes comparable to the vibrational damping rate, hot-electroluminescence can be observed. All these findings are believed to be instructive for further developments of both molecular electronics and photonics.
