We present a numerical study on the light transport properties and statistics of transmission channels in random media with inhomogeneous disorder. For the case of longitudinal inhomogeneity of disorder we find that the statistics of the transmission channels is independent of the inhomogeneity and the system can be equivalent to a counterpart with homogeneous disorder strength, both of which have the same statistical distribution of the transmission channels. However, for the case of…

Effect of a bias field on disordered waveguides: Universal scaling of conductance and application to ultracold atoms

We study the transmission and conductance of a disordered matter wave guide subjected to a finite bias force field. We show that the statistical distribution of transmission takes a universal form.

High-resolution 3D light fluence mapping for heterogeneous scattering media by localized sampling.

The relative light extinction analysis principle together with a miniaturized collection fiber in a direct fluence measurement setup is proposed to obtain the spatially resolved light intensity distribution under transversally inhomogeneous light propagation conditions and provide local characterization of the transport medium.



Light transport behaviours in quasi-1D disordered waveguides composed of random photonic lattices

We present a numerical study on the light transport properties which are modulated by the disorder strength in quasi-one-dimensional disordered waveguide which consists of periodically arranged

Universal optimal transmission of light through disordered materials.

Wave front shaping is used to selectively couple light to the open transport eigenchannels, specific solutions of Maxwell's equations which the sample transmits fully, resulting in an increase in the total angle-integrated transmission compared to the case where plane waves are incident.

Macroscopic approach to multichannel disordered conductors

Relation between transmission eigenchannels and single-channel optimizing modes in a disordered medium.

The experimental validation of the predicted prediction that transmission eigenchannels with higher transmittance preferentially contribute to the single-channel optimizing modes in proportion to the square of eigenvalues is reported.

Anderson localization as position-dependent diffusion in disordered waveguides

We show that the recently developed self-consistent theory of Anderson localization with a positiondependent diffusion coefficient is in quantitative agreement with the supersymmetry approach up to

Perfect transmission through Anderson localized systems mediated by a cluster of localized modes.

This study systematically found resonance modes of a 2-D Anderson localized system that allow for the near-perfect energy transmission and observed that the internal field distribution of these eigenchannels exhibit dense clustering of localized modes, which suggests that the clustered resonance modes facilitate long-range energy flow of local waves.

Intensity Distributions of Waves Transmitted through a Multiple Scattering Medium.

The distributions of the angular transmission coefficient and of the total transmission are calculated for multiple scattered waves. The calculation is based on a mapping to the distribution of

Relation between conductivity and transmission matrix

The dc conductance 1 of a finite system with static disorder is related to its transmission matrix t by the simple relation 1 = (e /2nt) Tr(t t). This relation is derived from the Kubo formula and is
