Abstract: We report the experimental observation of strong exciton–photon coupling in a planar microcavity composed of an organic semiconductor positioned between two metallic (silver) mirrors. Via transmission and reflectivity measurements, we observe a very large, room temperature Rabi splitting in excess of 300 meV. We show that the Rabi-splitting is enhanced in all-metal microcavities by a factor of more than 2 compared to an organic film positioned between a silver mirror and a dielectric mirror. This enhancement results from the significantly larger optical fields that are confined within all-metal microcavities.
