Abstract:
By using a microscopic quantum model, we study theoretically different roles of nanocavity plasmons in scanning tunneling microscope (STM) induced light emission upon selective initial excitation of molecules or plasmons. The time evolution and spectroscopic properties of the emission from the coupled plasmon-molecule system in each case are studied using time-dependent quantum mater equations. When the STM tip is placed on the molecule to ensure direct carrier injection induced molecular excitation, the major role of the plasmons is to enhance the molecular emission via increasing its radiative decay rate, resulting in sharp molecule-specific emission peaks. On the other hand, when the STM tip is located in close proximity to the edge of the molecule but without direct carrier injection into the molecule, the role of the plasmon-molecule coupling is to cause destructive interferences between the two quantum objects, leading to the occurrence of Fano dips around the energy of the molecular exciton in the plasmonic emission spectra.
