Abstract

The conjugated polymer semiconductor poly(3-hexylthiophene), (P3HT), is integrated directly into the slot region of resonant plasmonic split-dipole nanoantennas. The P3HT radiative emission rate is enhanced by a factor of up to 29, in experiment, and 550 for the ideal case, due to the large local density of optical states in the nanoantenna slot region. Additionally, the theoretical modified luminescence quantum efficiency is shown to increase from 1% to 45% for optimized nanoantenna parameters.
