Tunable optical spin Hall effect in a liquid crystal microcavity
This work demonstrates external control of spin currents by modulating the splitting between transverse electric and magnetic fields in liquid crystals integrated in microcavities in order to control spin currents over macroscopic distances. Expand
Towards properties on demand in quantum materials.
Emerging strategies for selectively perturbing microscopic interaction parameters are described, which can be used to transform materials into a desired quantum state and outline a potential roadmap to an era of quantum phenomena on demand. Expand
Comparison of the performance of photonic band-edge liquid crystal lasers using different dyes as the gain medium
The primary concern of this work is to study the emission characteristics of a series of chiral nematic liquid crystal lasers doped with different laser dyes (DCM, pyrromethene 580, and pyrrometheneExpand
Spin-Orbit Coupling for Photons and Polaritons in Microstructures
We use coupled micropillars etched out of a semiconductor microcavity to engineer a spin-orbit Hamiltonian for photons and polaritons in a microstructure. The coupling between the spin and orbitalExpand
Engineering spin-orbit synthetic Hamiltonians in liquid-crystal optical cavities
Three-dimensional tomography in energy-momentum space enabled us to directly evidence the spin-split photon mode in the presence of an artificial spin-orbit coupling, which opens the door to photonic emulators of quantum Hamiltonians with internal degrees of freedom. Expand
New perspectives for Rashba spin-orbit coupling.

Bose-Einstein condensates of exciton-polaritons in inorganic semiconductor microcavities are known to possess strong interparticle interactions attributed to their excitonic component. TheExpand
Emergence of the persistent spin helix in semiconductor quantum wells
Experimental observation of the emergence of the persistent spin helix in GaAs quantum wells by independently tuning α and β1 is reported, and a spin-lifetime enhancement of two orders of magnitude near the symmetry point is found. Expand
Spin-orbit interactions of light

Colloquium: Artificial gauge potentials for neutral atoms
When a neutral atom moves in a properly designed laser field, its center-of-mass motion may mimic the dynamics of a charged particle in a magnetic field, with the emergence of a Lorentz-like force.Expand
