Title: Control of strong light-matter coupling using the capacitance of metamaterial nanocavities

Abstract

Metallic nanocavities with deep subwavelength mode volumes can lead to dramatic changes in the behavior of emitters placed in their vicinity. The resulting collocation and interaction often leads to strong coupling. We present for the first time experimental evidence that the Rabi splitting is directly proportional to the electrostatic capacitance associated with the metallic nanocavity. As a result, the system analyzed consists of different metamaterial geometries with the same resonance wavelength coupled to intersubband transitions in quantum wells.
