Optical gain spectroscopy of colloidal nanocrystals is performed using a tunable open access microcavity with an ultra-small mode volume. By tuning the cavity mode energy across the nanocrystal ensemble emission band while performing lasing threshold measurements, information on the material gain characteristics can be extracted.

A simple planar indium-tin-oxide-free organic light-emitting device (OLED) with a significantly enhanced external quantum efficiency of nearly 39% is reported. By inserting a high-index layer below the low-index transparent conducting polymer electrode, most optical benefits of the low-index electrode are retained, yet the radiation into the substrate is more convergent within the escape cone for direct optical out-coupling.

Zero-reflectance metafilms are demonstrated to be optimal plasmonic sensors. Complete annihilation of the reflectance (R) of a highly reflective surface such as Si can be achieved with an ultrathin layer of Au nanoparticles. Such zero-reflectance metafilms show much superior plasmonic sensing performance than those of nonzero reflectance films.

T. J. Antosiewicz, C. Wadell, and C. Langhammer show on page 1591 how silver nanodisk-shaped optical antennas harvest energy from an incident light beam via excitation of localized surface plasmons. The energy of the plasmon is then coupled into adjacent much smaller palladium nanoparticles, increasing their light absorption by more than an order of magnitude on average. It is expected that this energy transfer pathway can be exploited to increase hot electron-mediated catalytic reaction rates on small transition metal nanoparticles.
