We introduce the term Majoranon to describe particles that obey the Majorana equation, which are different from the Majorana fermions widely studied in various physical systems. A general procedure to simulate the corresponding Majoranon dynamics, based on a decomposition of the Majorana equation into two Dirac equations, is described in detail. It allows the simulation of the two-component chiral spinors, the building blocks of modern gauge theories, in the laboratory with current technology… Expand

Quantum optics as a tool for photonic lattice design
We present the theoretical basis needed to work in the field of photonic lattices. We start by studying the field modes inside and outside a single waveguide. Then we use perturbation theory to dealExpand
Mapping plasmonic topological states at the nanoscale.
It is demonstrated that such edge states can be selectively excited with the linear polarization of the incident light, and visualize them directly by near-field scanning optical microscopy. Expand
