Plasmonic nanostructures made of novel low-loss plasmonic materials are emerging as prime components for single-photon sources and nanoscale sensors with unique properties. Plasmon-enhanced single-photon emitters possess the advantages of GHz photon production rates, nanoscale footprint, room-temperature operation and strong tolerance to the cavity resonance frequency shifts. We present several realizations of quantum emitters coupled to plasmonic nanoantennas made of crystalline silver, using both random and deterministic assembly methods, focusing on single-photon production and the optical readout of single electronic spin states.

Conference Presentations are recordings of oral presentations given at SPIE conferences and published as part of the proceedings. They include the speaker's narration with video of the slides and animations. Most include full-text papers. Interactive, searchable transcripts and closed captioning are now available for most presentations.
