Ultra-strong coupling of molecular materials: spectroscopy and dynamics
We report here a study of light–matter strong coupling involving three molecules with very different photo-physical properties. In particular we analyze their emission properties and show that the excitation spectra are very different from the static absorption of the coupled systems. Furthermore we report the emission quantum yields and excited state lifetimes, which are self-consistent. The above results raise a number of fundamental questions that are discussed and these demonstrate the need for further experiments and theoretical studies.
