Photonic nanostructures can confine light into tiny volumes and enhance its interaction with matter. When reaching the strong coupling regime, light and matter start to behave as a single entity and their interactions change dramatically, resulting in the formation of new quantum states which are a coherent superposition of photons and material excitations, called polaritons. In my talk I will discuss a new concept in light-matter interactions - that such hybrid photonic/molecular systems can be used to tailor the properties of organic dye molecules and to control their chemistry.
