Management of the angular momentum of light: preparation of photons in multidimensional vector states of angular momentum.
It is shown that suitable light vortex pancakes allow the add-drop of specific vector projections and it is suggested that such photons might allow the generation of engineered quNits in multidimensional quantum information systems.
Solitons in nonlinear lattices
This article offers a comprehensive survey of results obtained for solitons and complex nonlinear wave patterns supported by purely nonlinear lattices (NLs), which represent a spatially periodic
Quantum spiral bandwidth of entangled two-photon states
We put forward the concept of quantum spiral bandwidth of the spatial mode function of the two-photon entangled state generated in spontaneous parametric down-conversion. We obtain the bandwidth
Dyakonov Surface Waves: A Review
Abstract The interface of two semi-infinite media, where at least one of them is a birefringent crystal, supports a special type of surface wave that was predicted theoretically by D'yakonov in 1988.
Extended organization of colloidal microparticles by surface plasmon polariton excitation
In this paper we demonstrate the first use of enhanced optical forces and optically induced thermophoretic and convective forces produced by surface plasmon polariton excitation for large-scale
Spatiotemporal optical solitons
In the course of the past several years, a new level of understanding has been achieved about conditions for the existence, stability, and generation of spatiotemporal optical solitons, which are
Solitary waves due to ?^(2): ?^(2) cascading
Solitary waves in materials with a cascaded χ(2):χ(2) nonlinearity are investigated, and the implications of the robustness hypothesis for these solitary waves are discussed. Both temporal and
Preparation of engineered two-photon entangled states for multidimensional quantum information
We put forward an experimentally feasible technique to generate engineered entangled states in d-dimensional Hilbert spaces in parametric down-conversion of photons. The scheme is based on the
Stable ring-profile vortex solitons in bessel optical lattices.
This work finds the families of vortex solitons and reveals their salient properties, including the conditions required for their stability, and shows that the higher the soliton topological charge, the deeper the lattice modulation necessary for stabilization.
