Optical Hyperspace: Light in Metamaterials with Hyperbolic Dispersion
03 Nov 2016 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Evgenii Narimanov
The composites with opposite signs of the dielectric permittivity in two orthogonal directions, known as the hyperbolic metamaterials, represent a new "universality class" of optical media, with the light behavior which is qualitatively different from that in either metals or...
Quantum Measurement Backaction: From Atoms to Optomechanics
13 Oct 2016 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Mukund Vengalattore
The act of measurement has profound consequences on a quantum system. As such, the evolution of a quantum system can be influenced and even controlled through the continuous measurement of its properties. I will describe our studies on such measurement-induced dynamics in systems ranging from...
Coupling of Quantum Emitters to Localized and Propagating Plasmons
