Experimental demonstration of flexible plasmonic spin-Hall effect and its application on coherent control

Optical spin-Hall effect (OSHE) is a spin-dependent transport phenomenon of light. Here, the spin of light is associated with the circular polarization. Although being observed one decade ago [1], OSHEs are usually extremely weak and in uncontrollable manner owning to the inability to fully control the spin-orbit coupling. Recently, with the development of… (More)
