Mathematical Model Based on Maxwell’s Equations Leads to Discovery of New Lightwave

Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email Comments
EDINBURGH, Scotland, Sept. 9, 2019 — Equations developed by physicist James Clerk Maxwell have helped to reveal how crystals can be manipulated to produce a distinctive form of lightwave. Researchers from the University of Edinburgh and Pennsylvania State University made the discovery by analyzing how light waves interact with certain naturally occurring or man-made crystals. The researchers found that a previously unknown type of lightwave, recently named the Dyakonov-Voigt wave, was produced at the interface where the crystals meet another material, such as oil or water. Dyakonov-Voigt waves can be produced only by using...Read full article
