Probing the Local Density of States in Nano-Photonic Systems: a Numerical Discussion — •Julia F. M. Werra1, Andreas W.

The photonic local density of states (LDOS) of a nano-photonic system quantifies the position dependent coupling between a point emitter and the electromagnetic modes. Thus, it is the key characteristic of such systems in the context of radiation dynamics; especially in the realm of plasmonics with its strong and highly confined field enhancements and in the nano-scale regime.

In this talk, we will present theoretical and numerical foundations to quantitatively calculate the LDOS of an arbitrary geometry within the discontinuous Galerkin time-domain method. As an example, we will focus on nitrogen-vacancy centers taking especially its specific energy level scheme into account and compare our computations to experimental data. This facilitates a detailed quantitative interpretation and understanding of quantum-emitter based fluorescence life-time imaging (see Ref. [1]).
