A fundamental problem of using photonic states as carriers of quantum information is that they interact weakly with matter and that the interaction volume is typically limited by the wavelength of light. The use of metallic structures in quantum plasmonics has the potential to alleviate these problems. Here, we present the first results showing that a single subwavelength plasmonic nanoaperture can controllably modify the quantum state of light. We achieve this effect by using a specially engineered two photon state to match the properties of the nanoaperture.
