Chiral nanophotonic waveguide interface based on spin-orbit interaction of light

  title={Chiral nanophotonic waveguide interface based on spin-orbit interaction of light},
  author={J. Petersen and Juergen Volz and Arno Rauschenbeutel},
Controlling the flow of light with nanophotonic waveguides has the potential of transforming integrated information processing. Because of the strong transverse confinement of the guided photons, their internal spin and their orbital angular momentum get coupled. Using this spin-orbit interaction of light, we break the mirror symmetry of the scattering of light with a gold nanoparticle on the surface of a nanophotonic waveguide and realize a chiral waveguide coupler in which the handedness of… CONTINUE READING
