    Birefringence, from the very essence of the word itself, refers to the splitting of light rays into two parts. In natural birefringent materials, this splitting is a beautiful phenomenon, resulting in the perception of a double image. In optical metamaterials, birefringence is often an unwanted...

    The luminescence polarization properties of GaInP islands have been investigated. The islands, which form during overgrowth of InP quantum dots, were studied using scanning tunneling luminescence (STL) and photoluminescence (PL). STL from these islands shows emission at an energy below the main...

    We report on the polarization dependence of intraband photoresponse of (In,Ga)As/GaAs quantum-dot device structures for light polarized parallel and perpendicular to the layers.
