Fluorescence is a property possessed by certain forms of matter to absorb light and shortly after emit it as light of another color. In the study of fluorescent materials, metallic nano-structures can act as effective antennas for fluorophores, as they can increase the emission rate, determine the polarization, spectral shape and radiation patterns of the fluorescence emission. Lutz Langguth investigates how different fluorescence applications can benefit from metal nano-antennas.
