    19.05.10 — Nanophotonics and Metrology The resonance fluorescence of a two-level single molecular system interacting with a plasmonic nanostructure is investigated. Specific regions of space are identified, where a balance exists between the near-field enhancement and the modification of the decay rate, such that the fluorescence spectrum of the molecule exhibits the Mollow triplet and the emission photons are antibunched. The utilization of such quantum phenomena at the vicinity of custom-designed plasmonic nanostructures paves the way for applications in nanoscale quantum devices and quantum information processing.
