Transformation Optics and the Geometry of Light

- U. Leonhardt, T. Philbin
- Physics
- 30 May 2008

Metamaterials are beginning to transform optics and microwave technology thanks to their versatile properties that, in many cases, can be tailored according to practical needs and desires. Although… Expand

Fiber-Optical Analog of the Event Horizon

- T. Philbin, C. Kuklewicz, S. Robertson, S. Hill, F. König, U. Leonhardt
- Physics, Medicine
- Science
- 29 November 2007

The physics at the event horizon resembles the behavior of waves in moving media. Horizons are formed where the local speed of the medium exceeds the wave velocity. We used ultrashort pulses in… Expand

Canonical quantization of macroscopic electromagnetism

- T. Philbin
- Physics
- 25 September 2010

Application of the standard canonical quantization rules of quantum field theory to macroscopic electromagnetism has encountered obstacles due to material dispersion and absorption. This has led to a… Expand

General relativity in electrical engineering

- U. Leonhardt, T. Philbin
- Physics, Materials Science
- 17 July 2006

In electrical engineering metamaterials have been developed that offer unprecedented control over electromagnetic fields. Here, we show that general relativity provides the theoretical tools for… Expand

Observation of Noise Correlated by the Hawking Effect in a Water Tank.

- L-P Euvé, F. Michel, R. Parentani, T. Philbin, G. Rousseaux
- Physics, Medicine
- Physical review letters
- 25 November 2015

We measured the power spectrum and two-point correlation function for the randomly fluctuating free surface on the downstream side of a stationary flow with a maximum Froude number F_{max}≈0.85… Expand

Electromagnetic energy momentum in dispersive media

- T. Philbin
- Physics
- 19 August 2010

The standard derivations of electromagnetic energy and momentum in media take Maxwell's equations as the starting point. It is well known that for dispersive media this approach does not directly… Expand

Horizon effects with surface waves on moving water

- G. Rousseaux, P. Maissa, C. Mathis, P. Coullet, T. Philbin, U. Leonhardt
- Physics
- 30 April 2010

Surface waves on a stationary flow of water are considered in a linear model that includes the surface tension of the fluid. The resulting gravity-capillary waves experience a rich array of horizon… Expand

Optical angular momentum in dispersive media

- T. Philbin, O. Allanson
- Physics
- 22 May 2012

The angular momentum density and flux of light in a dispersive, rotationally symmetric medium are derived from Noether's theorem. Optical angular momentum in a dispersive medium has no simple… Expand

Observation of negative-frequency waves in a water tank: a classical analogue to the Hawking effect?

- G. Rousseaux, C. Mathis, P. Maissa, T. Philbin, U. Leonhardt
- Physics
- 29 November 2007

The conversion of positive-frequency waves into negative-frequency waves at the event horizon is the mechanism at the heart of the Hawking radiation of black holes. In black-hole analogues, horizons… Expand
