WAVE PROPAGATION THROUGH A COHERENTLY AMPLIFYING RANDOM MEDIUM

We report a detailed and systematic numerical study of wave propagation through a coherently amplifying random one-dimensional medium. The coherent amplification is modeled by introducing a uniform

Transmission, reflection and localization of waves in one-dimensional amplifying media with nonlinear gain

We study theoretically the influence of nonlinear gain effects on the transmission and the Anderson localization of waves in both uniform and random one-dimensional amplifying media by using the

A STUDY OF DISORDERED SYSTEMS WITH GAIN: STOCHASTIC AMPLIFICATION

A study of statistics of transmission and reflection from a random medium with stochastic amplification as opposed to coherent amplification is presented. It is found that the transmission

Control of Mesoscopic Transport by Modifying Transmission Channels in Opaque Media

While controlling particle diffusion in a confined geometry is a popular approach taken by both natural and artificial systems, it has not been widely adopted for controlling light transport in

Anomalous Anderson localization behavior in gain-loss balanced non-Hermitian systems

Abstract It has been shown recently that the backscattering of wave propagation in one-dimensional disordered media can be entirely suppressed for normal incidence by adding sample-specific gain and

Statistics of resonances and delay times in random media: beyond random matrix theory

We review recent developments in quantum scattering from mesoscopic systems. Various spatial geometries whose closed analogues show diffusive, localized or critical behaviour are considered. These

Disordered wave-guides with absorption: transmittance distribution at the diffusive-localized crossover

An analysis, from numerical calculations of a "tight -binding" model, of the behavior of transmittances distributions on the crossover between diffusive and localize regimens in disordered

Random-Matrix Approach to the Josephson Effect in a Disordered Wire with Symplectic Symmetry(Condensed matter: electronic structure and electrical, magnetic, and optical properties)

DC Josephson effect in a disordered wire with symplectic symmetry is studied based on a random-matrix approach. In a symplectic system, the Anderson localization disappears when the number N of

Light Transport in Random Media with ${\cal PT}$-Symmetry

The scattering properties of randomly layered optical media with ${\cal PT}$-symmetric index of refraction are studied using the transfer-matrix method. We find that the transmitance decays

Backscattering and the Decay of Transmittance in a Coherently Absorbing or Amplifying Ordered Chain

We study electronic properties of a one-dimensional, semi-infinite ordered chain in the presence of either absorption or amplification at each site (the site potentials having imaginary positive or

Probability of reflection by a random laser.

A theory is presented (and supported by numerical simulations) for phase-coherent reflection of light by a disordered medium which either absorbs or amplifies radiation. The distribution of

Some of the efforts to describe the problem of quantum electronic transport through a scattering approach are reviewed. Two-terminal devices are mainly considered. The key object in the scattering

Electron wave transport in coherently absorptive random media.

The results for the stationary distribution of the backscattered reflection coefficient differ qualitatively from recently obtained analytical results and the source of this discrepancy is pointed out by studying the phase evolution of the complex reflection amplitude.

Localization of light: Dual symmetry between absorption and amplification.

It is shown that dual systems, which differ only in the sign of the imaginary part of $\epsilon$, have the same localization length and paradoxically, absorption and stimulated emission of radiation suppress the transmittance of the waveguide in the same way.

Multiple scattering in the presence of absorption: a theoretical treatment for quasi one-dimensional systems

We consider propagation of waves in a disordered medium, extending the treatment of quasi one-dimensional systems, due to Dorokhov and to Mello et al to include absorption. In particular, we obtain

Observation of magnetically induced transverse diffusion of light

PHOTONS and electrons, despite their very different nature, show many similarities in their behaviour. Several photonic counterparts of established electronic phenomena—such as photonic energy

Invariant imbedding approach to localization. I. General framework and basic equations

A unified framework for solving the problems of wave transmission across a random medium is outlined. Using an invariant imbedding approach, differential equations are derived for the reflection and
