Effects of geometrical ray chaos on the electromagnetic eigenmodes of a gradient index optical cavity.

Abstract

Electromagnetic analogies of quantum chaos are investigated in two-dimensional optical cavities which have reflective surfaces and contain a gradient refractive index medium. As the shape of the cavity is transformed continuously from a rectangle to a parallelogram, the geometrical ray paths undergo a transition from stable to chaotic dynamics. In the… (More)
