Planar microcavity structures provide a versatile means to control the optical properties of semiconductors. In this paper, we describe strongly-coupled microcavities that contain two different organic dyes that are separated by a 100nm thickness spacer layer. We show that simultaneous strong coupling of the individual Frenkel exciton species to a single cavity photon mode leads to new eigenmodes that can be described as admixtures of all three states. These new 'hybrid' exciton-photon structures are of potential interest as systems to study coherent coupling between Frenkel excitons. They further demonstrate the sophisticated control over light-matter coupling achievable using microcavities. © 2001 Elsevier Science B.V. All rights reserved.
