Abstract
Photonic Molecule, also called Photonic Dimer, is a quantum bound state of two photons. A photonic bound state has a specific entanglement of a Lorentzian anti-correlation in frequency space and two photons are in proximity due to its binding nature.Such signatures of a photonic molecule illuminates a potential tool that increases the two-photon microscopy efficiency to orders of magnitude higher. Here we numerically and analytically demonstrate the two-photon excitation efficiency between photonic molecules, long uncorrelated light pulses and ultrashort light pulses. The high excitation efficiency of a photonic molecule enables a saturation of fluorophores, such that the linear dependence of two-photon excitation crosssection does not necessarily hold. Also, we exhibits two possible methods to obtain the photonic molecules, as a fundamental possibility for a continuous photonic molecule source.
