    It is shown experimentally and theoretically that when an optical vortex propagates in free space, its wavefront rotates through an angle numerically equal to the Gouy phase. It is found that both the energy maximum of the optical vortex light flux and the amplitude zero of the perturbed optical...

    In certain materials, the spontaneous spreading of a laser beam (owing to diffraction) can be compensated for by the interplay of optical intensity and material nonlinearity. The resulting non-diffracting beams are called‘spatial solitons’(refs 1-3), and they have been observed in...

    State-of-the-art advances in nanoscale optomechanics allow light to be guided in free-standing waveguides or resonators. In closely spaced devices, the coupling between the guided lightwaves gives rise to an optical force known as the ‘optical bonding force’. Indeed, attractive...

    We theoretically demonstrate modulation of light polarization by a crossed rectangular hole array with asymmetric arm lengths. There are two waveguide modes that can modulate the x- and y- polarized incident waves independently. A specific structure is proposed to convert a left-hand incident...

    This paper presents two different approaches that may allow the optical interconnection between superposed levels of multilayer photonic circuits as, for example, in optical-networks-on-chip. The first configuration is based on multi-mode interference devices, while the second one exploits...

    As data rates continue to increase in high-performance computer systems and networks, it is becoming more difficult for copper-based interconnects to keep pace. An alternative approach to meet these requirements is to move to optical-based interconnect technologies which offer a number of...
