Gleb M. Akselrod (Duke University): Control of the radiative properties of emitters such as molecules, quantum dots, and color centers is central to nanophotonic and quantum optical devices, including lasers and single photon sources. Plasmonic cavities and nanoantennas can strongly modify the excitation and decay rates of nearby emitters by altering the local density of states. I will describe our work in the groups of Profs. M. Mikkelsen and D.
