Observation of the plasmonic Rashba effect manifested by a polarization helicity degeneracy removal in a surface wave excitation via an inversion asymmetric metamaterial is reported. By designing the metasurface symmetry using anisotropic nanoantennas with space-variant orientations, we govern the light-matter interaction via the local field distribution… (More)
In submerged microcavities there is a tradeoff between resonant enhancement for spatial water and light overlap. Why not transform the continuously resonating optical mode to be fully contained in a water microdroplet per se? Here we demonstrate a sustainable 30-μm-pure water device, bounded almost completely by free surfaces, enabling >1,000,000… (More)
This publisher's note amends a recent publication [Opt. Express24(3), 2850-2857 (2016)] to include Acknowledgments.
We experimentally report on optical binding of many glass particles in air that levitate in a single optical beam. A diversity of particle sizes and shapes interact at long range in a single Gaussian beam. Our system dynamics span from oscillatory to random and dimensionality ranges from 1 to 3D. The low loss for the center of mass motion of the beads could… (More)
We experimentally demonstrate, for the first time, binding of aerosols of various sizes and shapes in white light. The optomechancial interaction between particles is long range and is in the underdamped regime. Incoherency allows mitigation of interference fringes to enable monotonically changing the distance between particles from 60 μm to contact,… (More)
