Transverse and longitudinal angular momenta of light

- K. Y. Bliokh, F. Nori
- Physics
- 13 April 2015

Abstract We review basic physics and novel types of optical angular momentum. We start with a theoretical overview of momentum and angular momentum properties of generic optical fields, and discuss… Expand

Geometrodynamics of spinning light

- K. Y. Bliokh, A. Niv, V. Kleiner, E. Hasman
- Physics
- 12 October 2008

The semiclassical evolution of spinning particles has recently been re-examined in condensed matter physics, high-energy physics, and optics, resulting in the prediction of the intrinsic spin Hall… Expand

Goos–Hänchen and Imbert–Fedorov beam shifts: an overview

- K. Y. Bliokh, A. Aiello
- Physics
- 31 October 2012

We consider reflection and transmission of polarized paraxial light beams at a plane dielectric interface. The field transformations taking into account a finite beam width are described based on the… Expand

Electron Vortex Beams in a Magnetic Field: A New Twist on Landau Levels and Aharonov-Bohm States

- K. Y. Bliokh, P. Schattschneider, J. Verbeeck, F. Nori
- Physics
- 12 April 2012

We examine the propagation of the recently-discovered electron vortex beams in a longitudinal magnetic field. We consider both the Aharonov-Bohm configuration with a single flux line and the Landau… Expand

Edge Modes, Degeneracies, and Topological Numbers in Non-Hermitian Systems.

- D. Leykam, K. Y. Bliokh, C. Huang, Y. Chong, F. Nori
- Physics, Medicine
- Physical review letters
- 13 October 2016

We analyze chiral topological edge modes in a non-Hermitian variant of the 2D Dirac equation. Such modes appear at interfaces between media with different "masses" and/or signs of the "non-Hermitian… Expand

Angular momenta and spin-orbit interaction of nonparaxial light in free space

- K. Y. Bliokh, M. Alonso, E. Ostrovskaya, A. Aiello
- Physics
- 19 June 2010

We give an exact self-consistent operator description of the spin and orbital angular momenta, position, and spin-orbit interactions of nonparaxial light in free space. Both quantum-operator… Expand

Relativistic electron vortex beams: angular momentum and spin-orbit interaction.

- K. Y. Bliokh, M. Dennis, F. Nori
- Physics, Medicine
- Physical review letters
- 2 May 2011

Motivated by the recent discovery of electron vortex beams carrying orbital angular momentum (AM), we construct exact Bessel-beam solutions of the Dirac equation. They describe relativistic and… Expand

Topological spin transport of photons: the optical Magnus effect and Berry phase

- K. Y. Bliokh, Y. Bliokh
- Physics
- 21 February 2004

The Letter develops a modified geometrical optics (GO) of smoothly inhomogeneous isotropic medium, which takes into account two topological phenomena: Berry phase and the optical Magnus effect.… Expand

Optical momentum and angular momentum in complex media: from the Abraham-Minkowski debate to unusual properties of surface plasmon-polaritons

- K. Y. Bliokh, A. Bekshaev, F. Nori
- Physics
- 17 June 2017

We examine momentum and angular-momentum (AM) properties of monochromatic optical fields in dispersive and inhomogeneous isotropic media, using Abraham- and Minkowski-type approaches as well as the… Expand

Geometric phases in 2D and 3D polarized fields: geometrical, dynamical, and topological aspects.

- Physics, Medicine
- Reports on progress in physics. Physical Society
- 4 March 2019

Geometric phases are a universal concept that underpins numerous phenomena involving multi-component wave fields. These polarization-dependent phases are inherent in interference effects, spin-orbit… Expand
