Abstract

van der Waals metal-organic framework (MOF) is used as an excitonic material for advanced photonics. van der Waals supports different types of excitons and provides a dimensional confinement effect, which is especially pronounced for 2D structures and strongly changes the exciton parameters. The restrictions can also be overcome by creating microcavities with Bragg mirrors made of atomically thin organic semiconductors inside. Such a device is an elegant solution for manipulation of exciton states by light, but its construction remains highly sophisticated.
