Right- and left-handed rules on the transverse spin angular momentum of a surface wave of photonic crystal.

Abstract

By investigating the surface wave of photonic crystal, we put forward two sets of rules: the right-handed screw rule, judging the transverse spin angular momentum (SAM) directions according to the propagation direction of the surface wave; and the left-handed rule, judging the excitation direction of the surface wave in accordance to the SAM direction of… (More)
