Trapped Light in Anisotropic Cavities Could Lead to Optoelectronic Advancements

Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email Comments
WARSAW, Poland, Nov. 14, 2019 — A research collaboration from Poland, the United Kingdom, and Russia has created a two-dimensional system in which they trapped photons. The system, a thin optical cavity filled with liquid crystal, was modified with an external voltage that caused the photons to behave like massive quasiparticles endowed with a magnetic moment, called “spin,” under the influence of an artificial magnetic field. The scheme of the experiment: circular polarization of light (marked in red and blue) transmitted through a cavity filled with liquid crystal depending on the direction of propagation....Read full article
