Abstract

We have studied the spontaneous emission properties of Langmuir-Blodgett films containing dye molecules confined in Fabry-Perot microcavity structures having wavelength thickness. The presence of the cavity causes great modifications in the emission spectrum and emission intensity in the direction of the cavity axis. A clear change in spontaneous emission lifetime occurs, which is also attributed to the microcavity effect.
