In this paper we report on the feasibility of light confinement in orbital geodesics on stationary, planar, and centro-symmetric refractive index mappings. Constrained to fabrication and [meta]material limitations, the refractive index, n, has been bounded to the range: 0.8 ≤ n(r[combining arrow]) ≤ 3.5. Mappings are obtained through the inverse problem to the light geodesics equations, considering trappings by generalized orbit conditions defined a priori. Our simulation results show that the…

It is demonstrated that a two-dimensional (2D) graded index map of the refractive index can be used to transform a Gauss beam into a J(0)-Bessel-Gauss beam by means of a 2D index-mapping that is fully integrable in silicon photonics based planar lightwave circuits (PLCs).
