Selective excitation of a diffusive system's transmission eigenchannels enables manipulation of its internal energy distribution. The fluctuations and correlations of the eigenchannel's spatial profiles, however, remain unexplored so far. Here we show that the depth profiles of high-transmission eigenchannels exhibit low realization-to-realization fluctuations. Furthermore, our experimental and numerical studies reveal the existence of interchannel correlations, which are significant for low… Expand

Influence of internal reflection on correlation of intensity fluctuation in random media.
The results show that reflection of the boundary may cause drastic changes in the behavior of the correlation function, which undergoes a crossover from a quadratic to a linear falloff with separation as the reflection increases. Expand

Position-dependent diffusion of light in disordered waveguides
To observe position-dependent diffusion, disordered waveguide structures were fabricated with the silicon on insulator wafer and etched in an inductive coupled reactive ion etcher to observe spatial variation of the diffusion coefficient D(r) in the self consistent theory (SCT) of localization.
