Scientists Shape Light to Travel Along a Single Branch

Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email
Scientists at the Vienna University of Technology (TU Wien) showed how the branched flow of light can be made to propagate along a single branch rather than along many branches at the same time. Their approach, which they think could be applied to different types of waves, from scalar to vector and from two to three dimensions, is based on shaping the incoming wavefront. The wave signal is then sent exclusively along a single preselected branch and is hardly noticeable anywhere else. The branched flow of lightwaves occurs when an incoming wave splits into several paths, reaching some...Read full article
