Von Neumann and Wigner theorized the bounding and anti-crossing of eigenstates. Experiments have demonstrated that owing to anti-crossing and similar radiation rates, the graphene-like resonance of inhomogeneously strained photonic eigenstates can generate a pseudomagnetic field, bandgaps and Landau levels, whereas exponential or dissimilar rates induce non-Hermicity. Here, we experimentally demonstrate higher-order supersymmetry and quantum phase transitions by resonance between similar one… 

Pursuing complex optical energy through Exceptional Points of Degeneracy (EPDs)

We exploit balancing the complex optical energy between scattering and guiding states at contrived exceptional points of degeneracy in order to form an active waveguide without utilizing an active

Observations of 't Hooft's sublattices and Dirac's monopole by inhomogeneous phases of solitons

Here, we experimentally generated photonic graphene by resonance of inhomogeneously strained one dimensional lattices of triangular solitons. Where mildly twisted solitons are considered as north and

Double exceptional points generated by the strong imaginary coupling of a non-Hermitian Hamiltonian in an optical microcavity

Exceptional points (EPs) have recently attracted considerable attention in the study of non-Hermitian systems and in applications such as sensors and mode switching. In particular, nontrivial

Maximal Shannon entropy in the vicinity of an exceptional point in an open microcavity

The Shannon entropy as a measure of information contents is investigated around an exceptional point (EP) in an open elliptical microcavity as a non-Hermitian system, which results in a nontrivial topological structure of the Shannon entropy surfaces.



Observation of non-Hermitian degeneracies in a chaotic exciton-polariton billiard

It is demonstrated that non-Hermiticity dramatically modifies the structure of modes and spectral degeneracies in exciton-polariton systems, and, therefore, will affect their quantum transport, localization and dynamical properties.

Supersymmetry in quantum optics and in spin-orbit coupled systems

The discovery of submanifolds in parameter space of a basic light-matter interacting system where a certain Bose-Fermi duality is promoted to a supersymmetry (SUSY) which remains unbroken is revealed and it is shown that SUSY is robust with respect to decoherence and dissipation.

Spawning rings of exceptional points out of Dirac cones

The results indicate that the radiation existing in any open system can fundamentally alter its physical properties in ways previously expected only in the presence of material loss and gain.

The emergence, coalescence and topological properties of multiple exceptional points and their experimental realization

Non-Hermitian systems distinguish themselves from Hermitian systems by exhibiting a phase transition point called an exceptional point (EP), which is the point at which two eigenstates coalesce under

Strain-induced pseudomagnetic field and photonic Landau levels in dielectric structures

Magnetic effects at optical frequencies are notoriously weak, so magneto-optical devices must be large to create a sufficient effect. In graphene, it has been shown that inhomogeneous strains can

Photonic Floquet topological insulators

This work proposes and experimentally demonstrate a photonic topological insulator free of external fields and with scatter-free edge transport—a photonic lattice exhibiting topologically protected transport of visible light on the lattice edges.

Bloch-like waves in random-walk potentials based on supersymmetry

Inspired by isospectrality, this work reveals a deterministic pathway to bandgaps in random-walk potentials by applying the notion of supersymmetry to the wave equation and enables the formation of band gaps in extremely disordered potentials analogous to Brownian motion.

Experimental observation of the quantum Hall effect and Berry's phase in graphene

An experimental investigation of magneto-transport in a high-mobility single layer of graphene observes an unusual half-integer quantum Hall effect for both electron and hole carriers in graphene.

Parity–time-symmetric whispering-gallery microcavities

Optical systems combining balanced loss and gain provide a unique platform to implement classical analogues of quantum systems described by non-Hermitian parity–time (PT)-symmetric Hamiltonians. Such
