Radiation-Induced Correlation between Molecules Nearby Metallic Antenna Array

Figure 3

(a) Top view of the arrangement of the dimeric antennas and the molecule; here the spacing between the blocks is changed to be 3 nm according to the convenience in the calculation. (b-c) Top view: two sets of the dimeric antennas and one and two molecules, respectively. (d) Top view of the periodic 1D array of the dimeric antenna-molecule coupled system. (e) The absorption cross-section is plotted for each arrangement pattern; one can see that, in the 1D periodic array, the largest red-shift ~1.2 meV is induced due to the radiation-induced intermolecule correlation, which exceeds the one due to the antenna-molecule coupling.
(a) One-dimer
(b) Two-dimer (one molecule)
(c) Two-dimer (two molecules)
(d) 1D periodic structure
